i have a friend who's fighting a battle, and i thought she needed some armor. ....
these hats are the lace-edged women's hat and the butterfly hat both found on ravelry. i've made both hats before, and i like them.
i knitted them with berroco weekend which is an aran weight yarn. and with a size 4.5mm needle. you can check out my ravelry details on both hats here.
i really love this yarn. a lot of people have mentioned that it's splitty.. meaning that the ply's come apart very easily. i didn't have a problem with that at all... i find the yarn to be uber soft.. and i love love the colour selections offered.
soo squishy and yummy.
the butterfly's look a little tricky to achieve, but really it's so simple! these hats are great and enjoyable to knit up.
and i bet she looks fabulous wearing them. i just bet she does.
and... before she knows it, she'll be back to doing this:
... and this....
i hope we all get a chance to drink in a little sunshine this week. (and knitting) :)
what are your favourite things to do in the summer? are you a camping fan like i am? have you made any hats recently? leave me a comment....i'd love to hear your fav. pattern to go to!
