out of the darkness

The Sideways Grande Cloche has been sitting in a dark corner of my room for a long time, waiting for me to figure out what I want to do with it. After a few initial bumps, it became a lovely hat, but somehow I just couldn’t make the side strips work and I didn’t know what to do with them.

Today, I pulled it out and had a flash of inspiration. Perhaps this hat just wants to be simple.

Yup, that’s right, one of the strips is gone! I’m going to try a much simpler solution for hiding the seam. Perhaps then the hat will manage to fooly emerge from the darkness. :)

About fridica

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.
