Three Basic Hats
This is probably boring to most of you as it’s very basic hats like we all make when starting out with loom knitting. The purple one on the right is what I made the very first night I loom knit, it took me about three hours while watching tv in a hotel room in Virginia. Thats Red Heart Light & Lofty, which we’ll see more of soon as I’ve just done a more fun project with it. THe gray hat is the Bernat soft boucle that I hate, again the basic hat form with a brim, blahblah. This one’s for t, and has a scarf and fingerless mitts that go with it (but they’re not photographed yet). The teal one I made because I wanted something without a brim for sleeping in — Ifind the brim annoying under my neck. So I took some Moda Dea Metro (more of that to come, I like this one) and whipped up a hat quickly with a garter stitch border instead of a brim. Perfect for keeping the draft off my scalp.
This photo was taken at the end of the day but as these hats are pretty boring to me I didn’t feel it was worth taking the shot again another time. I’m a very lazy photographer, I am finding, which in some ways disturbs me as I’d love to have gorgeous, professional-looking shots like on other blogs, but just can’t manage to go into the other room, set up the lightbox and tripod and all the other faff that is involved. I think I will have to do all of that for my beadwork though, we’ll see.
