1st Hat

20 02 2009

This is the first hat I’ve ever knit. Can you believe it? I’ve knit toys, baby clothes, children’s sweaters, ponchos, bags, scarves galore, but never a hat. Until now. And I ripped it all apart tonight.

See that funky V just above the right side of my eyebrow? It was driving me nuts. Nuts I tell ya! And there was another one just like it on the other side. I know exactly what happened. I remember dropping a stitch twice and pulling it back up with my fingers. I must have done it the opposite of what I needed to. (In stockinette instead of garter for those of you knitters out there.) I didn’t even see it until the day after I finished it. Tried to live with it. Couldn’t.

I wouldn’t have even noticed the v if you didn’t point it out! Plus couldn’t you have put that part on the back of your head where you woudn’t notice it. I know, I know I suffer from perfectionism too!

I am in awe just looking at it. Know what you mean about imperfections, but you know, according to the Donnie book of making philosphy there are no mistakes, just a happy creating accident waiting to happen. :D

Absolutely love the color!
Is it a bulky weight yarn?
And, lastly, I’m so proud (that you ripped it out even though it looks great as is).
