My first Blume Hat, the one I lost....
I have started knitting another Blume Hat after losing my first one. I really loved that hat and I am super picky about hats for myself, so I am knitting another. I remember thinking after I finished the first one that it was a huge pain in the butt. Not that it is a hard pattern to knit, but because it is knit on tiny needles in sock weight yarn. I had to look all over the internet to find the yarn again as the color has been discontinued(Madelinetosh in Burnished).
It has been slow going and I had to frog good two inches which is several hours in sock weight on size 2 needles, but I made a mistake early on and wanted to make sure it was correct if I am going to invest time in knitting it again. I am sort of an impatient knitter with a million projects on my to-knit list, so re-knitting the same project is a challenge for me. I am sure it will be worth it when I am done. Fingers crossed tat I don't lose this one!
I am still reading and enjoying And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini.
