I made a knit HAT!

I made this hat!!! I am so proud of me!

You know sometimes you start a project with big ideas in mind? Lots of the time (at least in my case, the final project is not as cute as it is in my head). Well you knitters out there are probably embarassed for me and how proud I am, but I love this little hat! I learned basic cast on , knit, and pearl stitches from Grandma, but never learned to read a pattern. Anyhow, I did this without any human help! Just a fabulous book (I will post it next hat,) and you tube videos (who knew?)


I learned to knit on circular needles, learned about double pointed needles, learned to make pom poms too. The stitches were just basic knit and decreasing, a perfect starting project...Now I just need a cute little guy to put in this hat (counting down the days...)

What projects have turned out as cute in real life as they are in your head?

Oh I forgot, almost EVERYTHING I do is cuter in my head. But whenever something turns out CUTER than you had planned...it's absolutely magical!

That hat is so darling. I am sending a link to my daughter. She just learned to knit and just had a baby boy on the 17th, my 8th grandchild.
Thanks for looking at my site.
