Overdue Amelia

This hat has some problems with timing, my friends.

Originally queued: 12 October 2010
Cast on: 12 November 2011
Cast off: 13 November 2011
Photographed: 28 October 2012

Yes, the actual knitting took less than two days. Actually, less than 4 hours, my notes say. Yet the deciding to knit and the photographing took one year each! Well, talk about being overdue…

But finally, it is finished. So, without any further ado, here’s my Amelia.

She is lovely. She was easy, but interesting, to knit (great for practicing short rows). And she is certainly not the kind of hat you find in a shop!

After I finished it, I wasn’t too sure about the look, I thought I might just look bizarre in it, like a Dutch peasant woman or something like that. But the more I wear it the more I like it.

And, well, I might not have a airplane at hand, but I did take it for a ride in my own vehicle of choice!

Happy autumn, everyone! :)

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.
