I feel like I’m getting fairly good at knitting dishcloths. My hand/yarn coordination is still a little rough (so if you have any tips/good youtube videos, please let me know), but surely I’ll get better with more practice. Now I want to try my hand at an easy knit hat pattern! Emphasis on easy. These two are cute options, and hopefully, very forgiving.
There are puddles forming in the yard, and I’ve got multiple layers on. So fickle, the faux spring weather of last weekend. This hat was a gift for one of my best friends, made while it was freezing out, given while it was sunny and 70, and hopefully getting a couple more uses now before spring. My favorite part is the fancy pom pom.
Hope y’all enjoy a nice weekend! We have a movie date scheduled, and biscuits to make. And lots of naps to take.
I’ve only lived here for a handful of years, but I feel like this winter is colder than usual. I hardly ever remember walking around campus for more than a day or so when it was really cold. I don’t mind the chilly season at all, but our house is on the cold-blooded side. If its hot, its hot. If its cold, its cold. So we’ve been layering on blankets and our winter clothes. This would be a pretty blanket to add to our collection, and this is a cozy winter hat to keep our ears warms.
I like to have multiple projects going on. If I’m making card kits all day, I need to take a sewing break. If I’m making a quilt, I need to take some drawing breaks. This also usually results in separate messes all over the room, but you can’t win em all.
My newest obsession is hat making. I made a hat, took it apart, and repeated that 4 times before I found a pattern I actually liked. I made a big pom pom for my hat, and Jon gets the green one, which I will gladly pom pom with his approval.
Hopefully it will stay cooler a little bit longer so we can take a cute picture together in our matching hats!
We are getting super duper excited for our upcoming trip to Hawaii! After all the to-do lists and rushing around in the last couple weeks, I think we are both ready to have nothing on our agenda except to lay around. And I got it in my head that I need to have a beach hat, obviously. Or else how could I possible relax properly?
