A long hiatus…

Wow!  It really has been a long time since my last post.  I apologize.  But, after some personal issues, I am now ready to redevote some time back to blogging and knitting.

My first knitting project came about as a request from my son- a new winter hat.  So, where to find a great pattern?  Only the greatest site for knitters on the net today- Ravelry!  After searching through all my saved favorites and weeding through newly added patterns, I came across The Man Hat.  It’s a great pattern written by Haven Leavitt.

I used Patons Classic Wool Merino yarn in Forest.  I used US size 8 dpn the whole time, Cast on 72 stitches and knit the base for 6 inches prior to decreasing. I extended the decreasing until I had 4 stitches left and did a basic bind off on those 4 stitches.

I think it came out great and my son is happy.
