. I finally started knitting again after a 2 month hiatus. I went to Suss and got these two skeins of beautiful handpainted wool to make a hat. I am making it without a pattern (I can’t believe it) and so I am sure I will have to rip it out a few times until it is just right. I saw this really cute hat and decided to try my hand at making it from memory. I will keep you updated on my progress. But I love knitting on circular needles. It just knits up so fast. Isn’t this yarn beautiful? This was my progress from yesterday and now I am almost done! I love knitting small things, it’s so gratifying.
