A little knitting

I always tell people that I am not a knitting person and I always prefer hooks to needles, but I cannot deny that it is hard to resist the cute little knitting patterns, especially those are freely available via Ravelry, which not only allows you to find the patterns but also supplies a large picture collection of finished projects. This sweet baby hat is on the top of my latest favorite list.  

One thing I hate about knitting is the casting on. It took me one whole night to finalize the first row of this hat. There’s nothing special about the first few rows of this hat. There are not so many stitches on each row as it is only a hat for newborns. You will laugh at me if you see the number of stitches in the pattern. But, still, I couldn’t get the stitches and the gauge right so easily.

It becomes much easier once the first row is fixed. I went out to find the green yarn the day after and finished the whole hat before going to bed. 😀 I am somehow surprised that Mr. Y also likes this hat. He usually sniffs on anything I made in purple or any similar colors. Maybe the knot on the top gives it some magics. My next project will be only using the same lilac yarn. Let’s see how he reacts. One predictable thing is that I’ll have too much green yarn left over and wouldn’t know what to do with it for a while.

  1. I know exactly how you feel. I love all the knitting patterns out there but my hands are also more comfortable crocheting.
    I think the more we knit the easier it will get….I really hope so!

    You did a wonderful job on the hat….so cute!

  2. I’ve always loved your blog and thought I tricked google reader into showing me whenever you had new posts, turned out I missed everything over the last months!

    Anyway it’s good to hear you did start another project after the blanket, which was absolutely gorgeous by the way.
