Here is a picture of the children's hat that I had been working on. I finished it last night, but it was too late (read dark) to take a picture of it; I waited until this afternoon.
The colours are showing brighter on here because I used the flash. Any of the pictures I tried to take without the flash were too dark.
I used Paton's Classic Wool, black for the ribbing, and...ummm...I forget the colourway of the rest of it. I'll have to look into it as I have another skein of it. The needles were 4.5mm circular for the whole thing. I think next time I do this hat (or really any other hat), I will probably follow the directions and use the bigger size it called for to do the top part of it.
I wanted to get a picture of the hat on my friend's daughter to see how it would fit on a child's head, but she was sick tonight so I didn't get the chance. I also thought it might be nice to have a live model to show my work for once (with her mother's permission mind you)...no such luck - no live model that is, not that I didn't get permission...though technically I didn't get her permission since I didn't see her daughter tonight to take the picture, so I couldn't ask. Confused? Me too.
This was a patten I used from the holiday issue of the holiday Knit Simple that I mentioned in the previous post. The pattern was very easy to follow and knit up in no time really - well, so long as I kept knitting and not putting it down too often. I think I'll definately be using these patterns again in the future!
