Several hats to the good and I'm still feeling pretty committed to knitting more. After knitting one pair of socks after another on size 0 needles, it's a treat to knit worsted on nice big needles. Especially when your intention is to stash-bust because you can knit through the chunkier yarns sooooo much faster :)
Today's hat is dark blue with light blue stripes. Same pattern as the one from the other day - this Watch Cap - and same modifications to make it long enough for a rolled brim. It's a really comfy, warm and well-fitting hat. Yesterday's hat was grey with alternating dark green and dark blue stripes ... three more oddballs of worsted used up!
My enthusiasm for 2x2 rib is sure to wane pretty soon, though. I'm figuring on completing a couple more hats by the end of the week and then pack them all up to post them to their destinations.
With the idea of casting on something new at the end of the week I'm off to check the links at Tami's Amis to see what everyone else is up to. Maybe I'll find some inspiration for my next project there?
