After the intensity of my job the last few months, I was really in need of something that I could knit relatively easily (my mind has been picked clean of all creativity and motivation), had a purpose (my boss's birthday), and that I would actually finish in a short period of time, because I so very much needed a sense of accomplishing something...anything, really. This hat fit the bill perfectly.
Litha that was in the Summer edition of Knitcircus! I had been sitting on some absolutely stunning yarn from Tanis Fiber Arts that I very desperately have been wanting to play with, so last weekend I plowed through the pattern in just one single day. Of course, it helps that I designed it, which made it go very quickly, but the pattern is incredibly easy to memorize and is done in no time at all. I made this one less slouchy than the original, but I think it will look great on her all the same.
It's made from Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label Aran Weight Yarn in Teal. You can check out her other amazing colorways HERE. Just one skein did the job!
All that was left over after I finished was this cute little ball of yarn yumminess. If my love affair with Tanis' yarn goes on for as long as I think it will, I'll have lots of these lovely little remnants hanging around my yarn basket for years to come.
