This fantastic hat is popping up all over the knit blogiverse! And now I know why.
This knit is so satisfying. Quick, easy & fun all at the same time. It’s really quite a cute knit too.
Pattern: Capitan Hat by Rosie G
Yarn: Phildar Sport No.6
1 & 1/4 skeins
Buttons: from one of my Mom’s bins!
My 1st PS3: Elements knit. I’ve been exploring other avenues of the Elements – such as diet. So far I have made pancakes with roasted beet puree (umm…so delicious and they were a gorgeous shade of burgundy) and Chicken Tortilla Soup. I’m trying to ensure I include a healthy selection of ‘reds’ in my daily fare: tomatoes, red peppers, grapes…Hawkins Cheezies are orange…and lately a lot of pink grapefruit juice — curse you cough!
Ooh! btw: Carpooling won 3rd Prize in Bella Knitting’s contest. Kira’s blankie will be so well taken care of! Thank you Laura & Sarah. Please go check out the other entrants posts – they’re fantastic.
On that front I have one last section of blankie to crochet and sew on and then only have a border to add — I’m hoping that will smooth things out a bit. Not the tidiest of edges at the moment. And then Kira won’t have to make do with whichever sweater has been left in the car…
