As I was continuing on with yesterday’s short row free for all hat, I got to a point where I wondered if I had embraced the Anything Goes spirit just a little too much. Luckily, it was a brief moment. It’s true that hats don’t have to be head shaped! I’m very pleased with how my wonky hat turned out.
I’m officially amending the Almost rule. Almost only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades and hat shaping!
There is definitely a lot going on. In addition to non-standard shaping, mixing three different variegated yarns is dangerous. As a general rule, I would suggest against it. The short rows make it work though. It’s a kitchen sink approach. I’m loving it. It’s only empowered me to make even more radical choices. I’ve got some real doozies in the stash basket. I can’t wait to use them now!
I’m backing off the ledge a bit with the next one though. It’s on the needles already and looking rather lovely. I think I’ll keep it that way. There are still plenty of solids in the stash, after all!
Happy Friday! Hope you have a woolly great weekend!
