50 Hats in 2014


I was invited to take part in 50 Hats in 2014 Challenge by Stacey of UrbanGypz and this is actually hat #2.   The idea is to set your own goal of how many hats you think you can knit in the upcoming year.  I am going to aim for 20 hats since that is doable for me.  Plus I won’t lose interest this way.

This hat is out of some handspun from FatCatKnits called Frog and Carp that I spun awhile ago.  The pattern is Mandelbrot from Knitty. My project page on Ravelry has the details on this hat.  I am casting on already for another one using this same pattern and yarn since I want to tweak it some to suit me.  So look for another one soon.

But the real question is pom pom or no pom pom.  Thoughts?

It was supposed to be just some freezing rain today and switching over to just plain rain.  We got all ice today instead.  But the ice, snow, and cold are meaning my kitchen and pantry are getting cleaned out and knitting and spinning done.
