I had a bit of a distraction this week (but then again, don't I have a distraction every week!) I should have been knitting up my socks, cardigan and shawl, but couldn't resist joining in with a knit along for a hat on the Yarnder Wonder Podcast.
In the KAL, the hat could be any pattern, so I decided to use up some of my Jamieson & Smith stash and make a Fair Isle hat - as you know, I love my Fair Isle knitting.
Here's my completed hat, which took about four days to knit up.
I didn't use a published pattern but instead followed some notes I made a few years ago when knitting a similar hat.
I just love the way the colours have worked out. It was so enjoyable to knit, more than anything else I love the process of Fair Isle knitting. Very tempting to cast on for a another one!
So that's another stash busting project. This one used up 58g and I shall be linking this with Linda's Crafty Corner Stash Busting Party.
Now I really need to get back to all the other half-finished projects I have lying around - no more distractions. The Masters Golf is on this weekend, tonight is the last round, so I'm getting plenty of knitting time whilst watching. Sky Sports was made for knitters. The IPL in cricket has also started this weekend, very tempting to sit and watch cricket matches every afternoon, but that might be taking things too far. Whatever! I'm enjoying my sports and crafts and so very thankful for the time to do so.
So let's get moving and see those projects fly off the needles.
