Even though I have been knitting for a couple of years, I never made a hat. If you haven't noticed, I'm one of those jump straight in with both feet type of gals. When I first started, I made a pot holder to figure out how the needles worked and cause and effect. Then I jumped right into making the Exploration Station shawl
and have mostly been doing statement pieces / project pieces since then. This summer, I put my newest on hold and made several buffs and headbands for my staff at Adventure Sixty North.
I was just about to restart my newest project and I got a text from my son saying his head was cold at college. So here you go, my first hat!
Little did I know that my quick no makeup picture in front of work would catch the eye of the Ravelry folks.
It was a quick knit from Tin Can Knits that I will definitely come back to later. The 4 stitch cable pattern is easy to do without using a cable needle. After a couple of rows of the pattern you get the hang of it and cruise. Which means I can drink my wine and knit!
