As your may recall from Wednesday’s post, I was working on The North Hat in handspun Bond and classic wool. Well, I finished the knitting (as predicted) later that day and went on to wash and block the hat. Today I just added the pompom as the final touch. I think I really love that moose and evergreen motif and plan to make another version of this hat later.
The second hat today is made from an adaptation of a chart by GrammaIrene. It features a band of cute little fairies and flowers which I think the yarn pairing shows off really well. I used Belfast Mini Mills Merino sock yarn and Knit Picks Chroma Fingering for this pair and love how it turned out. Of course, this hat wouldn’t be complete with out a multicolored pompom to top it off.
How was your week? Did you make anything new? Do tell!
Happy Friday all!
