Step 1: These are my excuses, and I’m standing by them.
Step 2: On the bottom, my Peerie Flooers hat, which is a very snug fit. On the top, the teeny tiny hat, which I knit for myself in an apparently delusional state; see Step 1.
Step 3: The “head thunk”; self-explanatory:
Step 4: Rip!!!!!
the yarn looks like Malabrigo worsted in Paris Night? Very pretty, shame for the size 😉
Close but no cigar! It’s The Uncommon Thread Lush Worsted in Cobble. Very lush indeed!
🙁 Good news – you get to knit with that pretty yarn again. 🙂
Spoken like a true knitter!
Did I miss mention of the pattern? Looks like a great hat but my big head will require some mods or lager needles.
I will put all of the details in a future post (when I show you the re-knit item). But it is a Wooly Wormhead pattern called Skelter.
Thank you! I love her hats and Instagram shots.
That’s one way to make your yarn last longer 😉
Haha! I should have thought of this ages ago; I could have saved so much money on yarn!
I love your blog. I feel your pain.
Thank you. In this case, it is more annoyance than pain. If it had been a sweater I was ripping, than it may have been a different story. I was actually more annoyed that I had nothing to blog about (how is that for crazy?).
Yes….I feel you. I thought I finished fairisle slippers. Turns out I made one longer than the other. *head thunk*
Oh no! I’ve done that with sleeves before. We should always try to plug our brains in before taking up our knitting, huh?
Knit happens. To the best of us.
I should embroider that and hang it on my wall….
