f.o.: galloway hat.

This hat! What a dream to knit. I bought a kit to make it from Brooklyn Tweed because I liked the idea of having just the right amount of yarn for the pattern, but I ended up having some extra of the main color way because I didn’t add a pom pom. This is aContinue reading “f.o.: galloway hat.”

wip | (yet another) resist hat.

I love these Resist hats. I’ve knit four of them already–so why not a fifth? This one is knit using Quince and Co. Finch in sabine for the main color and canvas for the contrasting. This hat knits up really quick, so if you’re looking for some handmade holiday items as we wind down, thisContinue reading “wip | (yet another) resist hat.”

f.o. | karusellen.

I’ve made this hat before and loved it. So, when you love something, go for it again, right? For some reason, while I love pom poms, I opted against one for these hats and am pleased with the end result. Pattern is Karusellen by Erica Smith and this version is knit up using one skeinContinue reading “f.o. | karusellen.”

f.o. | striped hats.

The Striped Hats pattern by Quince and Co. is for sure my favorite pattern this winter. It’s simple, easy to memorize so the project is good for travel or knitting in public, and they knit up in a day or two. Plus, the color combinations are endless and you don’t need large amounts of woolContinue reading “f.o. | striped hats.”

f.o. | striped hat.

Back in 2013, I bought several skeins of Quince and Co. lark for their Striped Hat pattern. For some reason, they went in one of my stash bins to languish for four years. I have no idea why this project got away from me for so long. Usually, in these cases, I rediscover the yarnContinue reading “f.o. | striped hat.”

hunting | orange.

I knit my brother a Roku Hat in this shocking neon orange for Christmas. He’s into skeet shooting these days and an avid outdoors man. He needed an approrpiately knit hat. And while I finished it so closely to when I gifted it, I failed to grab a snap of it. However, here’s to hopingContinue reading “hunting | orange.”

lover hat.

This is the From Norway with Love hat I knit for the doc this Valentine’s Day. I love this hat; I’ve knit several of them, but I think this version might be my favorite. The main color is Manos del Uruguay Maxima in the slate colorway, which sometimes looks gray and sometimes looks purple, whichContinue reading “lover hat.”

brooklyn tweed.

I’ve made the Varia hat before. I had initially knit it for a gift but ended up shamefully keeping it for myself because its so comfortable. A few years have past, and I decided to revisit this hat. On Sunday night, I knit up a version with a bunch of odd ended Brooklyn Tweed shelterContinue reading “brooklyn tweed.”

holidaze.

Nothing screams holidays like extra dirty martinis in vintage mid century glasses and fair isle snowflake motifs in red and white. This hat ended up being an amazing stocking cap gifted before I could get finished snaps. It only took two evenings to knit, so I’m definitely starting another one this evening. Happy merry.

foxes.

I’ve been wanting to knit one of Hannah Fettig’s Fox Caps for awhile now and never got around to it. I know my good friend Mack would love one of these, so she is definitely getting one of these. This first one was knit using 2 skeins of Knit Picks Palette (I have a PaletteContinue reading “foxes.”
