Welcome to another Three on Thursday list. Today I’m thinking about knitting hats. What with the 52 Hats challenge, it seems like I’m always thinking about hats these days. Recently I've added three more hats to my Ravelry queue.
1.Oak Leaf Beanie designed by Morgan Capestrain. It's knit with Wool of the Andes and a twisted stitch chevron pattern. I love the idea of knitting something with the look of cables, but without the hassle of doing cables.
2. Weather the Weather Hat designed by Megan Williams. I love the lightening stripe zigzags. I have a love/hate relationship with lightening. I love thunderstorms and watching the lightening streak across the sky. But over the years, I’ve come dangerously close to being struck by lightening multiple times so I’m a little paranoid about it. As a teen aged lifeguard, I was standing about six feet away from the edge of the pool when it was struck. I’ve been on a sailboat and had the mast get struck. More than once, I’ve been in the water, swimming a boat back to shore that’s lost its steerage, when lightening was striking the water all around me. And several times, lightening has struck the ground just outside the window I was sitting next to. I’m a lightening magnet! So I thought it would be fun to laugh in lightening’s face and knit a hat with lightening bolts on it.
3. Ferry in the Harbor designed by Kirsten Kapur. Besides wanting to get more practice with fair isle, or color stranded knitting in general, the hat’s named Ferry in the Harbor. If you couldn’t tell from my lightening story, I love anything to do with boats and/or water.
