As I mentioned before I got bit really hard by the fair isle bug. It started with the Orla hat and is now showing itself with this viney creation. It all started with a few strokes of my pencil on knitters graph paper and turned into this beautiful hat.
The color of the leaves has a slight variegation which surprisingly gives it depth! I started this hat while out on the lawn celebrating WWKIP day. After a few rows in I thought it was going to be to big. So I changed my game plan and thought, well cowls are in too! I just needed a reason, any reason, to keep going! I continued on even when I realized I had casted on 4 too many stitches. (oops!) I was simply too impatient to see how the leaf pattern would come out.
I finished the main design yesterday and wouldn’t you know it fits perfectly (not too snug and not too loose!) on my 22 inch head… yea!!
I’m still trying to decide whether to change the edging to ribbing, maybe change the way I decreased for the head, maybe add a lil something at the top?? Decisions decisions! I’m just excited to have what I thought in my head actually BE on my needles… such a weird feeling! and so fun!
