At the beginning of the summer it was scrap yarn headbands and then it was self-designing and now it's berets and slouchy hats.
(Sorry, phone photo...currently memory card-less)
I went stash diving last weekend and came out with a couple skeins of worsted yarn that semi-matched. Thus this was born. East Falls Hat. I have been wanting to knit something from last year's Knitscene anyways. I modified it for worsted and re-did it twice. I am still not super pleased but it will do for now. But this one hat has me on a new addiction.
I started going through Ravelry last night and made a list of hats/berets I want to make in the near future.
Toadstool Slouch - also from Knitscene
Bungalow hat - Also from Knitscene
For now these are all just the freebies, as my budget is too tight to support other designers right now... Which brings me to the question of where I'll actually get the yarn to knock a few of these out. My stash isn't as big as I thought.
Still, I would love to have lots and lots of hats/berets and headbands to wear to campus this coming year. I just think it'd be fun.
