Distraction Knitting

I have been steadily working on my Rosina sweater, which is quite the slow burning project. Working a large piece, on size US 2 needles, with fingering weight yarn will keep you occupied for a looooooong while. Yesterday, I woke up and decided I needed a diversion. Something quick, easy, and mindless. A quick search though my yarn stash and…

By the end of the evening, I had completely finished the hat. Talk about instant gratification! I like to be a monogamous knitter, but sometimes you have to mix it up. 

The baby hat is a simple beanie using Paton’s Classic Wool. It began with 72 stitches worked in a 2×2 rib. I had some cream colored wool scraps so I added a simple band of color work (just alternating the blue and cream). The height of the finished hat is ~6 inches, which is perfect for a newborn. 

Three of my friends current have buns in the oven so this project wasn’t completely random. I still have some yarn left over. I am thinking a little pair of booties would help make it a nice set. 

Until Next Time,

  1. I can’t do the monogamous knitting thing. Mostly because I’m not always capable of working on something, so I like to have something that’s easy as well, for those times. Love the instant gratification projects, though
