A brief history of my knitting
I've been knitting a lot lately, so I decided to pull out the old behemoth monster that was my first hat (above). The thing could freaking double as a tube top on me (and no, I won't demonstrate!) :)
I was amused because, without even intending to, I chose almost the exact three colors of yarn the last time I went yarn shopping:
Those 3 are Patons Beehive Baby Sport yarns, by the way. What can I say, I guess I'm a sucker for teal and pink. I hope it's not the mauve of this generation. Because boy, do I hate mauve.
Anyhow, since I was never happy with that big, lumpy, HUGE first hat I'm gonna re-do it as a baby hat (pictures soon!)
In the meantime, here's my third baby hat:
Here it is unrolled, looking kind of like a PacMan ghost:
And here's a brief summary of my recent baby hat knitting:
Do I like this color palette? Of course I do!
Here's a few Flickr faves on that pink and teal theme:
