I do tend to get into knitting cycles quite easily. Hence making another hat just after I finish one. This hat is pretty different from the last one though. I bought some amazing Peaches and Creme yarn at Create & Knit, when I visited last. The colour drew me from across the room. It is quite a different shade from the ones I normally go for, but it was really yummy.
The pattern I chose was the Lotus Hat by UpTownPurl. The Ravelry link is here. I really like the lace pattern.
I used Addi circulars for this knit and I think that was a mistake. The cotton has no give in it, and neither do the metal needles. It felt like hard going sometimes on some of the lace stitches. I think it would have been easier on wooden or bamboo needles that have some flex in them and also have slightly pointier tips. But apart from those two problems I really like the project, especially the crown decreases. I love the way it looks from above. It's a shame that no one really gets to see that unless you are very short and they are very tall.
Now I must go and chose what to knit this weekend while I watch the Grand Prix. So many interesting projects in my queue to chose from, which one shall it be?
