When the giftalong started last week, I was debating with myself on if I should participate as a knitter. I had finished up the last bit of knitting on the last deadline project for 2014 so I had no pressing deadlines, but I have designs that have been on the back burner for the past few months and now is the time to get started on them, right? Nope. I convinced myself to purchase a few patterns and actually knit something designed by someone else for a couple of weeks. In the meantime, I do have two patterns to send to the tech editor and some other patterns to revise for re-release so it’s not as if I won’t be working.
Anyway, I finished a hat last night. Juliana got very into the idea of the giftalong and wanted a new hat. We looked through a lot of the eligible hat patterns on Ravelry, and she chose Asher by Julia Trice. We went to the yarn store, and she chose the yarn for her hat.
She’s super pleased with her new hat and has worn it almost all day long. All of the details can be found on my Ravelry project page.
