Day five: finishing fever!

IMG_9171

And so it turns out I can knit a hat in five days. I was definitely more focused on one project than in a normal week – the spinning wheel has sat bereft, and it was an easier pattern than some so I could pick it up for the odd minute here and there and do a bit as I had opportunity. Even so I was quite strict with myself to continue to do all the usual things I usually do so it’s a reasonably representative week. I guess nothing went really wrong in the week or the knitting to particularly slow me down which helped. That was really fun!  IMG_9168

And I am really pleased with the end product. I wanted a nice, cosy, slouchy hat and here it is. The reverse stockinette stitch is a favourite of mine at the moment and I am always a fan of cables. These were nice easy ones, perfect for working without a cable needle. The yarn is perfect for this project and I love the colour. Looking forward to a toasty school run. At least, my head will be warm…

    Well done Becky, that looks lovely, I especially like the colour which suits you very well I’m sure you will get plenty of wear out of it this winter.

    Well done Bek, you must be such a speedy knitter now. The photos are gorgeous, especially the first one 🙂 The hat is lovely; did you use handspun (is that a stupid question?)
