W.I.P. Wednesday

I finished knitting my sister's "Kitty Kap" last week but wasn't able to give it to her until over the weekend.  I also made her cat a little tiny one.  But I think it will be a 2 man job to get a photo of him wearing it - LOL!!  Despite what the Dr. Seuss book says, cats generally do not like to wear hats.

It came out a tiny bit too big (my sister's hat - not worried if her cat's hat fits).  I think the needle size was fine, I just probably should have casted on 40 - 44 stitches instead of 50 as the pattern states.  I was just happy to finish a knitting project without making mistakes and having to frog and re-do part of it - I made it all the way through.  It was a pretty easy pattern though.

I think my sister looks pretty cute in her pink hat.  

Hopefully, I can get over to her house soon and we can attempt to take a quick photo of her kitty wearing his kitty kap.   If you see me walking around with scratches on my arm, you will probably figure out that I tried at least.

I thought I would be done with hats sister-in-law has mentioned a few times that she would like a slouchy hat.  I don't care for slouchy hats, for myself, but I ran across some pretty yarn at Hobby Lobby this past weekend and it had a Charming Slouchy Hat pattern on the ball band and it said it only required 1 skein so I thought...why not?   I just started it this morning (before work) so don't really have photos to post yet.  So I will just post a stock photo of the yarn...Red Heart Unforgettable Waves, in the colorway "Lakehouse".  Pretty, huh?

Pin It!
