Knit Wit

I’m taking a knitting class that meets once a month for an entire year. We make a different hat meant for small children each month. So far, I’ve had two classes. I took the class because I figured it would be a good way for me to learn a variety of new techniques. That has proved to be true, as I’ve already learned how to read a lace pattern, knit icord, and knit on two circular needles. Here are my first two projects:

Please excuse the crappy camera phone photos.

I like the peach lace hat better than the second, which was a pain to make and I think it looks funny. The top seems to be too narrow and tall for the brim. Maybe it’s just me. I don’t know.

I also made myself a green variegated scarf.

Last night, I started a new project. It reminds me of a Tori Amos song. I know that’s weird. But I can’t wait to wear it and sing “never was a cornflake girl.”

Although, I’ll admit, my first 15 rows do not look like those in the sample. My brim is rolling, and I’m not super happy about it. I’m going to plug along and see what happens. Perhaps it is that I used a knitted cast on instead of the long tail. We shall see.
