Well folks, I am participating in a very fun, very fast Knit-Along with Larissa of Stitch Marker
(Sorry, I still haven't figured out how to do links to other blogs)
The idea is that everyone knits the same pattern but embellishes it their own way. My concept is this: I straighten my hair everyday to get rid of the curls that many tell me I was blessed to be born with... whatever, guys! Curls are a pain in the neck! BUT, sometimes I do miss those silly curls, so I made a hat with red curls. They are felted i-cords, but I don't think I felted them enough, so they are a little limp at the moment. I plan to remove them, felt them within an inch of their lives and then put them back on the cutest hat ever. Thus I present you my (nearly) completed "Meathead":
Isn't it cute?! Senor says it makes me look like a Hershey's kiss, which I think is totally true, though you can't really tell in this photo:
The pattern is very easy and quick (maybe 2 hours to make the hat), and it only took me one skein of Lamb's Pride Bulky (the yarn is doubled). Here's a photo of my leftovers:
Here's a close-up of the curls:
Thank you, Larissa, for letting us play!! I will send you an official photo of the Meathead once I get the curls felted better... but so far, I have had a great time!!
