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?

Purr........fect. Weren't you getting nervous there towards the end with being afraid you'd run out of yarn? lol. It's such a tease sometimes, you want enough without worry, but you don't want to buy or gift too much and end up with really odd amounts of this and that left over. Hope you enjoy your time at the cabin. Where abouts on Lake Erie were you? Seems we were both doing some traveling with our yarn. Gonna leave you the link so you can one of the things we explored.

That's pretty. The pattern reminds me of Catherine socks.

Love this post ... don't you love projects where you can cast on and bind off in the same day? There's something so fun about that. Your Miranda Hat is lovely!

The hat is gorgeous. Glad you made good use of that yarn. I'm not far from lake Erie. Hope you had a good time.

The hat looks great! I love those projects where you use up a whole skein with just a few yards left.

I like the sweetness and brightness of that pink!
