Very cute hat Smiley

I'm knitting with the same yarn currently, and I'm running into all sorts of little black things stuck to or spun into the yarn itself, as well as some scratchy fibers that look like hay.  Did you have the same stuff on your yarn?  Do you know what it is, if so?  I like the yarn anyway  - the neat slubby texture and it is so light, and the yardage for a ball is amazing... but I could do without the stuff that looks like dirt.

Girl. My yarn has so much vegetable matter in it. I made a sweater out of it and there were tons of like, little splinters and burrs in it. The yarn itself is lovely, though, if you have the patience to pick all that !@#$ out. I think the black bits are part of the yarn, though. "Think" being the operative word.

Y'all, I am beyond happy with this hat. I love cloches and after searching fruitlessly like forever to find a pattern I liked, I went ahead and made one!

I used Cascade Eco-Wool (major love for this yarn) and there is definitely enough in one hank for two hats. Um...what else...technically, it is not the easiest hat to make, but other than the pulled up stitches and ALL. THE. FREAKING. SEWING. it is not hard.

Kind of, "Pull Up" from 3 rows below. I made a tutorial for "how to make pinchy things"  http://www.yarnabuse.com/the-pull-up-stitch/. I tried to google for a better explanation, but only came up with crochet material.

ang_k: Thank you!!  Kiss

I basically just knit while sitting in front of the TV. With practice, I could knit in the round or do stockinette without looking at what I'm doing (doing it "by feel") but I still have to look down for increases, etc.

When I feel like reading and knitting, well, the knitting goes a little more slowly.

I think it's great, I love the color and the fit (totally didn't notice the excess at the armpits). And you rock it so well!

it looks great!  what kind of yarn did you use?

Thank you! I used Lana Grossa "Due," 50/50 wool & acrylic blend. I liked it very much. I got about 2.5-3 stitches (I forget which!   Embarrassed) to the inch on size 11 needles and was very cooperative during blocking, as in, it did not change gauge if left alone and where I pinned, it stayed that way. Good stuff.
