Turn-A-Square Hats

Even though I am trying to keep up to date with this blog thing, my real life just keeps getting in the way.

I never seem to have the time to sit down and write out what I have on my mind’s list of things that I want to share.

So with that said, I realize that I have to come up with a new way to get this done.

My approach to getting things done has always been an if you really want it done, you are going to have to do it yourself sort of mind set.

Now this might sound like a strange way to get my thoughts out here, but I have found that I can text myself some notes whenever I have a few minutes, then gather them into some kind of form that makes sense, then just paste them up here.

This is my first try at this.  I also don’t have the greatest text typing skills so maybe doing it this way will help me improve my texting!

OK then on to the hats – I became obsessed with them.  I found this pattern on Ravelry, by Jared Flood from Brooklyn Tweed fame, so easy and at the same time so satisfying were the results that I just had to make more.  These little hats are packed with cool knitting techniques that keep the work interesting, -1- circular knitting -2- color striping with the jog-less jog -3- mitered decreases that shape the top -4- switching to dpns to finish off.  I think they rival sock making, so if you are a sock knitter and want to try an interesting hat, give this pattern a look.

I stopped myself at 4 – but a little voice keeps calling from the back of my head – “use your stash to make more! – use your stash to make more!!”

So I may just listen to the voice —-

I know I have a pic of the 4th somewhere, I just have to find it- but if I go looking for it I might just find the stash needed to start another one…..
