More Slouch

This was a quick knit - finished it while WZ napped - gotta love that! I knit this hat with Malabrigo… OK, so I never understood what all the fuss was about with Malabrigo yarn but now I totally get it… this yarn ROCKS! The yarn is so wonderful to knit with. Love the color too. I will totally be knitting with more Malabrigo in the future. I think this hat did turned out good but I was hoping for it to have a bit more slouch. Nonetheless, it is a cute hat and I will wear it proudly.


I want to give a special thanks to Melynda for taking these photos. I always feel a little awkward when I have someone take photos of me and my knits, especially in public. We had some good laughs doing this in the parking lot after our fab (but CHEESY) dinner. From there we made it down to the SE Michigan Crafter's Meetup. The Meetup had a really great turn out. Lots of girls sewing and knitting. (see photos HERE) I had a really nice time and meet a lot of fun and crafty girls. So glad I got to meet the lovely Rae - she super nice and has inspired me to get my sewing machine out again. She was working on a super cute top and also a quilt that I feel in love with. I also left the meetup feeling inspired to try some designing of my own. It's something I've always wanted to do. Maybe a hat with 'more slouch' just might be my first pattern design. hmmmmm… let's see if I can keep the motivation/inspriation going!

I think that the photos are lovely ... really have that early autumn feeling.

The beret design looks very interesting, and I also thank you for the Malabrigo comment. I have not used that company's yarns, and your words encourage me.

Best wishes!

I LOVE that you could make it during a nap, instant gratification, lol.
