A friend really wanted one of these messy buns hat. I do love to knit for folks when they really want something - so I had no issues doing it. Fast knit. Started on March 18th and finished on the 19th. I used a bulky alpaca yarn (which is really soft). Now to ship it!
I started this project on August 1st 2016 and finished on March 14th. I picked it up and put it down. I frogged and started over. I didn't like the neck on the original pattern and re-made it. I tried to take into consideration how this was going to drape (since it is handspun 60% alpaca and 40% silk). I knit it a bit shorter than I would normal and blocked it to pull the lace pattern out.
I am loving the weight and feel of this. I'm still trying to decide if I want a button at the top or just let it fall open or a pin. Ideas?
It has been 2 years since I have spun. Not my best or finest work - but I'm glad to be back on the wheel. This was 4 oz of Hedgehog Fibre made of wool/silk blend. Turned into 214 yards of worsted weight yarn. Zooey wants a hat - I think I might make her one :)
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
