Oh my, I've had a long pause in blogging! There are two reasons for that mainly
1. I've been really really busy and
2. I haven't been knitting
You may not know it, but I play the theatre (not professionally but on a very high amateur level), and we had our opening night on the 17th of January. Before that, you can imagine, we had practice every other evening and after that I have been playing once or twice a weekend. I's been quite a lot to handle, and I am really happy to have a two week pause in playing now.
I've made a few hats lately, just for fun and to get something quick and easy on the needles.
The first one is my own creation, it's a slouchy hat with moss stitch, and the yarn was called Extra Merino Premium by Schachenmayr. It's adult size so I could keep it myself, but I think I will pass it on at some point.
Sometimes knits just don't get blogged, you know what I mean? I finish a FO, take pictures, crop them to the correct size... and never blog about the FO.
I don't mean to do it, but I do. So that means you get to see FOs finished several months ago, too. My apologies. But perhaps as these knits are new to you, you won't mind too much? Especially in this case, because the FO is just so gorgeous!
I just noticed I haven't blogged about two hats I finished months ago! Time to correct that mistake.
First I have a beret - the pattern I used is Beret Easy and the yarn is an old merino / modal blend called Marika Moon. I was going to give this hat to my mother in law, but I still have it... let's see what I do with it!
Welcome to the part two of my FO hat show, where I present two more of my recent FO hats! In the first part I showed you one hat for my MIL and one for chcarity. Of these next two hats one went to my MIL, too, and the other one to my colleagues to-be-born-any-day-now son.
