A Thank-You Hat

As I mentioned at the end of my Christmas yarn saga, I decided to make a thank-you gift for the person who bought me all that yarn in the first place. I finished this weeks ago, but didn't want to post about it until I had shared the whole story, since it wouldn't really make sense out of context. Here it is:


Pattern: Droplet Hat from Knitting Nature by Norah Gaughan
Yarn: Tahki Donegal Tweed Homespun, Color 845, one skein

Started: 1/5/2007

Finished: 1/26/2007

Comments: I had a great time knitting this hat, with the exception of the one row that has like a zillion bobbles. That being said, though, Norah Gaughan's no-turn bobble method does make the bobbles a lot easier, and it's a good technique to pick up if you're planning to knit any other project with bobbles, which seem to be cropping up all over knitting patterns right now!

Very very cute. Although they sound tedious, the bobbles do make the hat.

cool hat, must check out Norah's technique - as bobbles scare me, but I'm drawn to them!
