|Swirl Hat (link to Project Page)|
Pattern: Swirl Hat by Mandie Harrington (of Sheepy Time Knits)
Time Frame: started December 16, 2015; finished February 4, 2016
Yarn: Sanguine Gryphon Little Traveller in Reykjavik (less than 100 yds)
Needles: US #3 (3.25 mm) Signature DPNs
Thoughts: This is the second time I've made this hat. I made it a little longer than I had made Stormageddon's and I think it'll work better. Stormageddon's only fit him for a few short weeks because it was too short. It's not like he had a big head, either. To be honest, I was running out of yarn for his, which is why it ended up too small. This one, though I was also running out of yarn....it's a bit longer. Unfortunately, I did not get a modeled photo, mostly because the model hadn't arrived when the hat was gifted (he arrived within 3 days of the hat being gifted). I went back and forth about whether to donate it to the NICU at the hospital where Stormageddon was born or if I should gift it to one of the Mama's from Little Man's class. In the end, I gave it to Mama. One of Little Man's classmates was due to become a big brother and I gave the hat to Mama for baby.
I hope you're having a lovely Friday :) I'm wandering about Stitches West this weekend so that's exciting and all :) My Year of Projects post on Sunday will most likely be sorely lacking in Stitches West Goodness but I plan to have a full write-up, hopefully with a ton of photos (if I remember to take any!)......we'll see :)
