My S.P.E.W Hat Project
I started my first S.P.E.W hat the other day. I am a terribly slow knitter. What I wouldn't give to learn to Charm my knitting needles so they'd knit fast or by themselves. That would take care of my stockinette boredom. Of course, I have been hiding this from my husband. I have a lot of unfinished knitted items I need to finish up.
Anyway, I am going to finish off the top with an I-cord knot. The stitch pattern is called Peppercorn Stitch...it's sort of a bobble. It reminds me of an old lamp my mom had...which inspired me for the next hat....same stitch patt, but this time I'll add a ruffled brim. After that one I'll knit a beehive hat. I am just not sure if I want to knit it in yellow or go for an off ball color...
