Weee!!!!






Hooray for pixie hats!!


I have had this "finished" for quite some time, I was just too damn lazy to sew int eh loose ends until today. Today I have knitted alot. Some days I lack any motivation, some days my hands can't move fast enough...

Pattern: Ookpik's Pixie Hat from Knitwit
Yarn: Caron simply soft in watermelon and black (best cheap yarn EVER!!)

So cute!  Mine turned out like a freaking GNOME hat, it was so tall and stupidlooking.  I've seen a lot of people that had success with the Simply Soft, maybe I'll try it.

Thanks for the compliments guys!

intergalacticj: If you have mastered knit and purl, and perhaps learned increases and decreases (though, those aren't a stretch at all) the only real things you have to learn on this hat are picking up stitches, seaming (in mattress stitch, which is reccomended, but I just seamed it normally), and I-cord. I still have some trouble with picking up stitches, but I get through it. You just need to keep track.

octagonfudge: Caron simply soft is a wonderful yarn, and seems to work beautifully for this hat. I recommend you try it.

Oooh, I like it! Is it seamed in back?

I am a hat fiend, I have to admit. And a total fiend for Simply Soft. I love that stuff!

Huhwhat?: Yes, it is seamed. You kind of end up making a flat-ish surface to seam that forms the point. It's a very short seam.

You look so cute in your hat.  I really like the colors, and the black goes well with your glasses.  (Which I also like, by the way).  Aren't you coordinated  Wink

Cute hat. I wish I was that skilled at knitting. I'm still at the "not sure if I can handle anything more than a scarf stage".
