As it happens every year, not only is today Mom’s birthday, it’s also the FogKnits Blog 4th Anniversary! I’m still quite pleased that I thought about this overlap in the beginning. I’ve always got an FO post for the blog-iversary. It’s another project with a flower. If there’s one thing Mom likes it’s hats with flowers!
This was a fun one! The yarn is Noro’s Rainbow Roll…aka a thick, fluffy, pencil roving. It can be delicate and break easily so it’s not for everyone but I really love this yarn!
The pattern is Cameron’s Cap. It’s been one of my favorites for years. It’s a bottom up hat with a few quick short rows added to create the little ear flaps! Perfect for winter!
The flower is a common embroidery flower. I’m sure someone out there has a name for it but it ain’t me, babe! I’m really pleased with it though. And because it’s pencil roving, it’s not heavy or burdensome on the hat. That’s always a concern when attaching a big flower.
If I had more time, I’d share a retrospective of hats with flowers or maybe give you some blog stats. Instead you get pics of science shit. I got right back into it on day one! Turns out it’s like riding a bike…
And with that, I’m out the door for work. Those electrons won’t manipulate themselves! Happy Hump Day and Happy Birthday Mom!
