A Hat . . . And A Hat7 March 2011
Like most ‘enthusiastic’ knitters, I have a box FULL of odds and ends, leftovers from various projects over the years. I’ve really been trying to use these up by knitting hats for charity as that’s good “train knitting” for the mornings.
I also thought it was about time I knitted a few things I’ve for some reason never knitted before. I’d never knitted socks before last December and can’t say that I enjoyed it much, except that I DID get enjoyment from David’s pleasure at receiving them.
I then tried a couple of berets/tams from my box of leftovers as I’ve never done those either. They don’t photograph very well (I should have left them on the dinner plates I used for blocking them!) and the colours aren’t really ME but they worked and I’m sure I’ll find a home for them. And now I’ll knit one with my tastes in mind because they really seem to suit me (and, again , they’re good train knitting).
