While I was absent from cyberspace, I spent some of my spare time knitting little gifts. Among other items, two hats were completed to cover a too cold head.
Both caps were knitted from patterns in Homemade, Handknit.
The red hat above is a traditional stocking cap, made using a soft acrylic yarn doubled stranded for warmth and correct gauge, and was knitted with a simple garter stitch pattern.
The double layer white hat was knitted with a cotton acrylic blend yarn called Cotton Ease. Worked in an attractive lace pattern, the hat also has a turn up brim that adds style to comfort.
When my head is busily dealing with more complex matters, my hands appreciate simple projects.
