I was intrigued when I realized that flat panels could also be knitted on round looms – making an infinity scarf made sense, but a “regular” scarf? While it’s not exactly rocket science, it did take a bit of research to figure out just how it’s done. And even if you think you’re doing ok, sometimes you discover that there’s still ample room for improvement.
New Year’s Eve 2018 was a wet and blustery one in these parts. I suppose that’s not all bad – for those people who insist on lighting their own celebratory fireworks, the risk of starting a fire was decreased. While I typically spend NYE reviewing the year that’s drawing to end, I decided not to do that this year. Instead of looking back, I’m looking forward.
So, I’ve made a few hats on my round looms…and I’ve “frogged” a few, too. You know – rip it, rip it. Actually, after exploring options for adding onto a too-short hat, deciding a slouchy one was just too slouchy, and giving the thumbs-down to the folded-over brims my first hats had (too puffy with the bulky yarn I used), I just unraveled the ones that didn’t make the cut. Re-do time!
