|Geez, do I ever look tired. Please excuse my face.|
Even though I'm not sewing right now, I have started to pick up yarn projects. I crocheted this hat recently, and plan to make a bunch more for [SPOILER] Christmas presents this year. I really loved this pattern, the Divine Hat by Sarah Arnold. It's the most popular crochet hat pattern over on Ravelry, and for good reason; it's super easy, quick to make, and looks great! And being a free pattern doesn't hurt, either.
|I love how it swirls!|
I actually whipped off the first version of this hat the day I started it, but my tension was too tight and it was just too small. I pulled the ENTIRE thing back and re-crocheted it. Annoying, but worth the effort. Keep your stitches loose if you plan to try this one out! I've included more details on my Ravelry post, if you're a member (go friend me!). I used the ever popular Cascade 220 wool, and boy am I in love! Best of all, I found a great shop here in Whitehorse that sells it and a bunch of other lovely natural fibre yarn! WOOT!!
I should probably apologize up front, since there's probably going to be a lot more yarn works in the coming months. Between hats for Christmas, a class on knitting socks this fall, helping out make an airplane cozy this month, and a general lack of sewing space, sewing posts may be few and far between. Sorry guys. But stay tuned, because I do have a rather ambitious winter sewing plan in the works!
Happy sewing (and knitting, and crocheting, and whatever else charges up your creative juices)!
