hat before blocking

I knit up the Foliage hat at the cabin and started wearing it right away. This is what it looks like before it was blocked. And this is what it looks like after…not so different after all. I really haven’t knit that many hats, or at least ones that fit. I like knitting hats. I recently overheard someone say that they used to knit but just don’t know what to make so they haven’t knitted in years. I’m not sure what is wrong with the individual but I can think of at least, at least, 10 things that I want to make for myself right now. The list is longer for things I want to make for others. Right now I am trying to stay focused on Fall birthdays and Christmas which is right around the corner.

You can see a bit in the photo that I got my hair cut, really short. So far I like it a lot and just let it air dry and flip out into it’s natural puff. Some days I look in the mirror and think of the Quaker Oatmeal man and his hat- there’s quite a bit of flip on the sides these days. Now that it’s hat weather I can always wear a hat for a bit and tame down the flip- or just wear the hat.

    I’m knitting a scarf in a very similar leaf pattern right now. However, I’m doing it on #2 needles (cause those were the first ones handy) and with so many stops and starts (knitting in the green room during the show) I made the executive decision to only use the pattern on the ends of the scarf with a plain stockinette for the rest. I did a lot of: knit three rows, rip two out, knit one row, rip 3/4 out and try again.

    It’s going to be the tightest scarf ever. Maybe I can make it short and put a button on it to keep it closed.
