Yes its a word! So i have finally finished my lovely 20s hat, it is from this fabulous book
yes that is my hat on the front.
So here is the process to end result!
it was at this point i started to go mental, tiny needles and tiny wool, well for me anyway lol
Now onto the hat, i was suppose to pick up all the stitches from the brim but i would well really rather not, so i just thought i would knit it separately and sew it together.
So it was finally finished!
Well it was crazy curly wurly and as Natalie had just made one she came round and helped me block it, which basically means stop it being curly and get it in the proper shape.
So this is what you do/ can do
soak in water careful not to scrunch it up,
lift out of water carefully so it doesnt hang and stretch
lay on a towel and roll over to get excess water out of it
roll up a towel about the same size of your head i.e if your head measures 20inches round try and make towel that size by rolling it up. Then pin the brim around the hat.
let them sit on shelf/airing cupboard to get dry.
then TA DA!
i have pretty much not taken this off since sunday afternoon, literally its freezing in our office so i get to sit with it on all day long hee hee! Hope you werent terribly bored with such a long knitting post. thanks for stopping by.
