Pretty Pretty Peerie Flooers
So, I look like a major dork in knitted hats and it's dark and stormy outside and the lighting is horrible and I had to take a crummy self-portrait, but just look at this hat!!!! Doesn't it make you smile? It does me. Thanks to Kate Davies for coming up with such an inspiring project ~ she's a genius. This was a challenge from start (picking out 7 yarn colors and then having to decide what combinations worked) to finish (there has to be a trick to weaving in all those ends!). My hat is so different from all the others that have been made that I'm a little leery that my colors don't completely work (my shades are so dark and rustic) but for a first multi-color stranded knit, I don't think it's too bad? This is one of the few things that I've made where every time I look at it I think to myself....I can't believe I did that!!!
Details of my Peerie Flooers Hat can be found here, as well as some more dorky photos. Hopefully my personal photographer (that would be my husband) and a sun break are both on hand this weekend so I can get some better pictures! ~ Melissa
