With the longer winter nights, I have found myself sitting in front of the TV more than usual...but my family with tell you that I am terrible at sitting still for an entire movie or TV show. So I thought I would start some knitting again....a small project of course...
I found this hat pattern in a Bernat pattern booklet. I have made this hat for my daughters using a lighter yarn that was super cute. This time around I used Loops & Threads Charisma in red. I love the color and thought that the fur pom pom in a brown that matched closely to my hair color would be fun.
This pattern is knit on straight needles and I treated myself to a new pair of Knit Picks needles...have any of you used these?! I love them!
The pattern looks complicated to (at least to my untrained knitters eye) but it really isn't. I made this hat in two evenings...pretty good for me. I think that my best knitting really does come is small projects and if I can add a cool pom pom...even better!
