Here's a hat I made today. I was going to make this scarf, but as soon as I started I cringed at the thought of knitting another long scarf. So I decided to use the pattern to make a hat instead. Wee! And now it's an FO after a day.
This is my very first experience with colorwork/stranding. It went ok. Here a few pics. First is inside out, now....do I leave that as is or should I knit a liner of some sort? I don't really wanna, but I dunno....what do you all normally do?
Also, as you can see on the pic where it's blocking on a bowl....the white part is wool, the black is an acrylic blend. And the white is just mushy shedding all over. I'm very disappointed with how it looks. Is there any way I can repair this once it's dry? I dunno, a lint roller or razor or something? So sad that half of the colorwork looks all muddy because of the stupid yarn :verysad:
Anyway here it is. It's for a very new boyfriend with a birthday on Saturday (grr)...I wanted something cute and small and he's an x-ray tech so he enjoys skeleton humor.
