Ok so it’s cold and dreary out and my brain still thinks its Sunday. I have nothing interesting to say at all right now…but I’m procrastinating going to the grocery store. Boo. ...so how about a finished project?
That would be the Norwegian Star Earflap Hat by the wonderful knitblogger Tiennie. As soon as I saw it on her blog way back when I knew I wanted to knit it. So last weekend after I ran out of yarn on Juliet I stash dug some Patons Classic Merino (I have an embarrassing amount of Patons in bright colors from the Felted Bag Bender of ‘06) and went to town:
For some reason the lighting in my bathroom is better than anywhere else… can’t wait for the sun to come back so my photos will stop sucking. I hate this dark when I leave in the morning / dark when I get home at night crap. At least we’re on the upswing now…
Yeah. I took these about 10 min before I left for work one day....
I’m not very fierce pre-coffee… ugh.
Despite my issues photographing it I did love knitting this hat. The pattern was clear and simple to follow and the chart was extremely easy to read.
Which means that I have conquered Resolution #2. Color work does not freak me out anymore. In fact I even knit it double handed holding the blue in my left hand and the gray in my right.
Clearly, a pair of matching mittens are in order.
