It's fall! And I've started knitting again! Can you tell I'm excited? I learned to knit and crochet last winter and really loved it. Now that the weather's cold again, I'm diving back in.
Last weekend I knitted my first ever hat. I used the "Le Slouch" pattern from this blog. It was SO easy. You could do it too. Or you could buy a slouchy beret at Urban or Forever 21, but it would be made out of acrylic (EW!!!), not real wool. This book really helped me decipher the instructions, and I worked with this yarn. I'm using the hat to hold back my bangs, which I'm getting really sick of. But I think these hats would make good Christmas gifts too.
