Another month, another hat! Turns out this pear inspired hat design suits my beet green dyed yarn perfectly. I chose the large size and since I didn’t swatch (as the author suggested), it ended up a lot bigger than I thought. Tossing it in the dryer for a bit helped a little. Although it’s still bigger than I would like, I’m glad it’s not too small since a lot of my recent hats have been snug.
Unfortunately, now I am taking a break from knitting to give my wrist a chance to rest and heal. After this hat, I started up a sweater for my brother in a tight gauge and set a goal for myself to finish it by the end of November. After knitting up 18 or so inches rather quickly, my wrist decided it had enough. I never realized just how attached I’d become to knitting and admit I’m feel rather lost right now. I might be a slow knitter but I’m a constant knitter.
Pattern: Bosc Hat
Yarn: Lion Brand Fishermen’s Wool (hand dyed with beet greens)
