Remember when I used to make lots of stuff? Me, too. That was nice. Oh well. There’s a season for everything, right?
I thought I’d share this Christmas hat that I’ve been poking along with. I started it late in the Christmas season and had hoped to finish it before the semester started, but got sidetracked with deep cleaning projects. It’s Amy Miller’s Donder and Blitzen pattern, and I’m hoping it will be adorable when it’s all done! I picked the pattern based on the red and green Plucky primo worsted yard I wanted to use for a Christmas project. I never tracked down a suitable near-white in primo worsted, so I swapped in a white worsted yarn from a local yarn shop. The only thing I didn’t factor in was how long it makes the red strands of carried yarn. I have some concerns about sections where I may have pulled too tightly. Hopefully it all works out!
