  • Fake But Fun

    Live your life, do your work, then take your hat.
    -Henry David Thoreau

    This hat is the second most fun project I've knit in a while (see Sunday for the most fun one).

    Fake Isle Hat
    Pattern: from Magknits - go knit this pattern!
    Yarn: Noro Silk Garden in a random single skein and an oddball of a worsted weight brown yarn, the identity of which is lost to the vagaries of time
    Needles: US 7 Addi turbos
    Notes: I knit the small size as written and had plenty of leftovers of both the whole skin of silk garden and the partial skein of that random brown yarn. For my next one - and there will be a next one - the knitting needs fewer stitches, smaller needles, or both. Otherwise, it's perfect.
    Best Thing About This Project: I finished listening to HP7 while knitting it. I knew Snape wasn't evil!

    If fake can be so fun and perfect, why be real?! Good job, it looks great!

    That hat is still on my to-do-list. Oh, and don't tell me about Snape. He sure knows how to hide it, if you ask me. I'm only on book 4.
