It's Friday! I survived another weird week. If I can get through the rest of today in one piece I think I'll celebrate by finishing that double knit hat later. *L*
But first here is a photo I took several months ago at a party type thing I attended. Lots of pretty lanterns were about so I took a picture.
Last night I finished the pink and brown hat I started Wednesday night. I LOVE it muchly. I'm considering pulling a Norma and keeping it for myself. I don't think I will though, she's cute and can get away with that sort of thing. I'd probably be roasted over an open fire or something weird. o.0 I knit it with the intention of giving it to Dulaan so I guess I'll do that... even though I really want it for myself. I guess I'll have to make myself another one. I have plenty of leftover yarn so it'll be okay. But I want it NOW, ya know. o.0
I didn't use a real pattern, beyond the basic "it's a hat shaped thing". I was basically just playing around with color knitting stuffies. Just seeing what happened if I did this or that. I really should read a book on this or something. I really like how it came out and it was so fast to knit up. :D The hat design was inspired by some of the hats Kirsten has been making recently for Dulaan. Well mainly the top of the hat. I saw something like that on one of her recent posts and loved it muchly. :D The colors I used for this hat are in honor of Isela's Brown and Pink hats she's doing for her upcoming appearance on Knitty Gritty. She's making a BUNCH of them with her loom knitting and said she was going to donate all those hats to Dulaan when she's done. :D
Here's a basic view of the hat. Sorry about the bad lightening. It's weird over here. o.0
Here's the inside of the hat.
Here's the top of the hat.
I'm really happy with the way this hat turned out. It's far from perfect, but it was just so much fun and I think it's really cute. :D
