FO: Miranda Hat
Just as I was thinking that I needed a small project or two to use up some stashed worsted weight yarns, I came across this blog post from Project Stash - a summer KAL of Miranda hats for charity. My resolve doubled after seeing the cute hats on Knitspiring Oddysey's blog.
Coincidentally last week I got a package in the mail from Crochetapy with some goodies I had won, and included was a small hank of pink yarn. Just enough for a hat, I thought. This whole plan was starting to feel like it was meant to be.
I started the hat on Saturday morning and knit through the car trip out to Lake Erie. As we pulled up to the cottage I was just about ready to start the crown decreases. Later that afternoon I grabbed my needles and finished it up. Well that took almost no time at all! And I was right that it was just enough yarn for a hat - less then 2 metres left when it was all said and done. How perfect is that?
Stay tuned, there may be another couple of Miranda hats in my future ... possibly a light blue one and a white one I think. How about you? Wanna sign up for the KAL?
