A hat to restore confidence

December 29th, 2011 § 0 comments

I simply love knitting hats. They are knitting instant gratification at its finest. You work away for a few hours, and bam! you have almost finished the thing! Really helps restore one’s confidence, especially after, say, ripping out a project that makes you want to throw a hissy fit. A hat is just the remedy for such feelings of failure.

I cast on this beauty last night, which is a really quick & easy knit. False cables that travel like figure-8’s up the “body” of the hat. Really enjoyable!

Yarn – Nashua Creative Focus Superwash in teal blue (but to my eyes, its really a steel-blue, whatevs), worsted weight.
Needles – 4mm & 5mm 16″ circular needles.
Part of the 2011 (or 2012) Stashdown exercise started by my good friend Yarn Piggy

This hat is for a certain coworker who is enthusiastic about my creative projects. Its nice to be appreciated, and its nice to give back to those who appreciate me :)

Here’s the current progress as of this morning:
