Over the last few days, preparing to publicly declare my knitting goals for 2012, I have had lots of fiber-y thoughts running through my mind. What better activity to accompany fiber-y thoughts than knitting?
When I sat myself down with a stern admonition to focus - get those goals set, I accompanied that focusing/thinking with the cast on for my next Felted Bucket Hat.
This one, number six, I think, is knit with Berroco Ultra Alpaca a 50% Wool, 50% Alpaca yarn that should felt well. It is meant to coordinate with this colourful scarf
and both to be worn with my new winter coat.
Fortunately, with our spring-like winter, there has been no rush to finish the hat. Now though, having my 2012 knitting goals in front of me, I am motivated to get started. Knitting this hat was the last on my 'to-knit' list before casting on for a 2012 goal-oriented project.
Huge in it's un-felted state, it should be just right after tonight's felting. Then I am ready to knit on with renewed 'en - toos - iasm' and also ready for some cold, winter-like weather.
Ted's oversized hat made me laugh. Can't wait to see the felted version.
Aside: I hope this stupid (lovely, but stupid) weather won't affect the apple crops....
