Meet Summer

In my last post I mentioned that one of my friend's commissioned me to make three hats for him. The process hasn't been easy due solely to my own second guessing. The second hat was easy. I knew I wanted something that isn't " traditionally male" for the colour. Something bright and happy....something that will remind you summer in those cold rigid winter days. What better colour than yellow? I had just the right shade of it in my stash...cascade 220 in goldenrod. I think cascade is my absolute favourite go to brand. It really is an incredible workhorse yarn. After going through my favourite patterns in ravelry (it's A LOT) I decided to finally stop admiring Jane Richmond's patterns and just purchase one. I settled on Kathleen and went to work. The knit was easy and quick. I must admit I had some trouble reminding myself when to twist and when to not twist my stitches.
