« on: January 22, 2006 11:00:17 AM »

Friday night I finally found somewhere online with videos to teach cables, double knitting, etc etc. (www.knittinghelp.com is great)

So I decided to try double knitting out.

I wanted to make a bag, so I didn't do too many little designs after the very bottom, so I can open it.

When I got to the end, I binded off the colors seperately so it's open.


Blue Side:

Red Side:

So awhile after I posted this, I was sitting at the computer, bag next to me, attempting to do my homework like a good kid.

I got bored.

And plopped that thing right on my head, looked in the mirror, ran for some hair ties, and made the corners ears.

The result:

My mother has dared me to wear this to school. We're allowed to wear hats on Fridays.

I'm debating whether or not to make myself look like a bloody idiot. But then again, I go to an arts school... and we all look like idiots all the times.

But in the meantime, if I decide to keep it as a hat (cause I really have no use for a bag this size and stretchyish) I'm going to un-bind each side and re-bind it using elastic cord. Cause it kind of hurts the forehead after awhile.

That's a lovely hat.  You should totally wear it to school.  You'll look like a groovy chick, not an idiot.  Although perhaps I'm dating myself by saying "groovy chick".

Lead us not into temptation, for we can find it ourselves.

I have now pulled off the binding and re-binded it with elastic cording. Then I crocheted around the cording to hide it.

Much more comfortable now.  Grin
