I cast on two hats for International Cast On All The Things Month. They are both finished.
The first is a pumpkin baby hat. John’s best friend and his wife are new parents, so I made them my traditional baby gift. I’ve been making this for so long I have no idea what the pattern is. Now I just need to get this mailed.
The second finished object is a Puimcin Hat. I noticed the hat while watching the Caught In The Wool Podcast by Bumbleebee Acres. I bought a kit as soon as it came out. The yarn, marshmallow worsted, was great to work with. I probably should have gone up a needle size, but would have run out of yarn.
You make a woven button to top the hat. I loved making the button, and think I’ll use the technique again. Please ignore the wonkiness at the bottom of the button, I have fiddled with the button since taking the photograph and it looks much better.
We went to the orchard yesterday, and I found the hat really works with the Wear All The Wool look I’ve been going for lately.
Did you finish anything this week?
