Starting September With A Bang

On the 1st September Andi over at MySistersKnitter started a new knit-a-long focused on completing WIPs (works in progress to the non-knitters out there). I really really really needed this challenge, because the good Lord knows I have a few projects that I need to get off my needles. They have been there wayyyyyyy too long. When did I stop being a monogamous knitter? I have no idea but what I do know is I don't like it that much. Startititis is real people...I love being apart of Andi's ravelry group. They have been very helpful in my knitting journey. It's important to be apart of a group that motivates, inspires, supports and fosters growth. If you're ever on ravelry you should stop by :).

Now that the knit a long has begun, I am sorting through the projects that I have been avoiding. First up is a hat that almost never made it pass the start line. I spent all of last night working on it. It didn't matter that I wanted to sleep and may have had a few moments of head nodding, I was determined to finish. Guess it was one of those "now or never" situations.

These pictures were taken immediately after cutting the yarn. Couldn't wait until I washed and blocked it. Yup, I was excited.

The first time I saw this hat I knew that I had to make it. The designer, Caryl Pierre did a fantastic job with the pattern. It was easy to understand. The crown of the hat is gorgeous. I love it! Plan on making this again. Any suggestions regarding colour for the next one?


  1. Monogomous knitter. Love that .. I am no Mono Sewer I can tell you. Love this Hat.

    Suggested Colour would be purple. :)

  2. Monogamy is in the rearview mirror saying "how you doing". I don't remember when was the last time I had only one project going. Especially now that I started taking orders. It's funny you should say purple I was thinking about using that...we're on the same page ;)
