2016 is my year to learn knitting.
So far, I have made a shawl, a cowl and scarves.
On my Year of Projects list, I have placed hats and socks at the top of the list.
I purchased Craftsy.com classes for both of these items, but haven’t done the classes yet.
This is due to Craftsy changing the site design and working out the bugs and my shattered iPad.
Recently Target had iPad Minis on sale, but had none in stock (I refuse to pay full price-I’ll just keep checking stock online and then swoop in with my raincheck).
So while I was at Target, I bought a Kindle Fire for basically the loose change I had in my wallet (seriously cheap).
Surprisingly, it is everything I need-books, Overdrive, Netflix and Amazon Prime.
I need to check if I can put the Craftsy app on it.
So I will soon be able to watch my classes.
In the meantime, I had some left over Bernat Bargello Plum yarn from my simple lapghan that I made my aunt.
On the label was a knit hat, made flat and then seamed.
This seemed do-able for me!
Except for the fact that I lost track of my right side and wrong side (placed my marker too late), the fact that I am still iffy on counting knit rows (row counting is so much easier in crochet) and my slightly wonky seaming, I think it turned out pretty good!
I had my cousin look at the picture and she thinks it is cute and her mom would love it!
This picture cracks me up:
My hat making skills are a work in progress!
