50 Hats in 2014

20140108-162249.jpg

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?

Ended up with around 6 inches before it stopped.  Supposed to get freezing rain next before all rain. And snow again on Tuesday.  Time to knit!

Still Knitting

Still knitting. This is Lintilla in handspun. Pretty sure the fiber is from Miss Babs. But I have been bad and not labeled some when the yarn is finished sadly. Sarah of by Sarah was wearing a lovely one at MDS&W that she had knit up out of handspun. And she was of course right about the fact that this pattern is addictive and easy to memorize. It is perfect for a handspun. I may have to knit a second one soon.
