a small crafty victory




friends, i am very proud to announce that i have completed my first knit of the season! it just so happens to be my very first hat- not just your average dish cloth or scarf! woo hoo! 

thanks to our weekly stitch n' bitch group & the encouragement of a dear friend, i decided to pick up my circular knitting needles & give knitting in the round a shot, despite my left-handed knitting fails of the past.

meet paprika, the first born hat of many hat babies to come.

{ok, that might be a little too far...}





for the pattern, i used sweet multicrafty's free pattern, "weekend head warmer." it took me about four hours to knit this baby up, but if you're a skilled knitter unlike myself, it should take much less time. 

do let me know if you try knitting this hat!

love,
natalie

p.s. i admire all of the knitting bloggers out there for their perfect knitting photos. the photos were harder than the knitting!

Beautiful! You did a great job. What stitch n' bitch group do you do? I get an FB invite for one every week but the one time I tried to go no one else did! haha I'd love to come knit with you :)

erin, it's a very informal group that just started so i'm sure it's not the one you're talking about. i'll let you know about the next meeting when i hear more details!

This hat is so cute! I don't think I've ever commented before, but I've been reading for a year or so. Just wanted to say that I find your posts refreshing and inspiring. They remind me to take a deep breath and refocus on what is important. Thank you :)
