I fell in love with the Nutmeg hat by Norah Gaughan. I love her designs. The hat is knit at a perfect gauge for City Tweed Heavy Worsted. I am determined to expand my hat collection and the range of "warm" toned colors in my wardrobe. What could be easier than this quick knit hat in a "new" color for me - Morning Glory. I think it is a nice "warm" purple that looks good against my face.
Check out the lovely details of this hat. It was a new experience for me because it was knit flat and then seamed to form the hat. A bit of a problem because I have no experience seaming knit fabric because I am a knitting-in-the-round fan. I decided that I needed some help to finish my hat.
And look how well it turned out!
I imagine that as soon as the weather begins to cool, every knitter is compelled to knit something WARM! But, a sweater doesn't have the instant gratification that is needed. But, a hat? That is perfect! So my next Knitting Buddy drawing will be for
Two Balls of City Tweed Heavy Worsted in you choice of color so you can knit up a hat of your choice.
All you need to do is leave a comment on this blog entry (short or long) and I'll randomly choose from the entries. The drawing will be on September 25, 2009.
