This project wins the prize for ‘longest time from cast on to pattern release.’ Which is frankly a shame, because it’s an absolute delight.
So much of a delight that I somehow managed to knit it twice. Don’t ask. The last few years have been challenging on a variety of fronts, and I simply cannot bring myself to feel bad about having knit a lovely hat twice.
It does leave us with a grave difficulty though. I am completely incapable of picking a favorite between the yarns I used (the darker is by Spun Right Round, the lighter by Knerd String). So we shall just have to show off both. Which I also cannot bring myself to feel bad about.
And I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to get yours done ever so much more quickly than I did!
(Someone will ask, so don’t fret, the mitts will be out next, almost certainly two weeks from today, assuming no more than the regular number of catastrophes befall the me & mine & the world between now and then.)
