MEATHEAD!!!

Well folks, I am participating in a very fun, very fast Knit-Along with Larissa of Stitch Marker
http://larissmix.typepad.com/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!!

Adorable! The curls are lovely, and I'm so glad it looks like the yarn and pattern worked and that hat fits well. Thank you so much for knitting along.

Hi, my name is Katie. I just joined the meathead knit-a-long, but I haven't got the pattern yet. I love your meathead, it's really cute. Curly hair is a handful, but it's nice sometimes.

I just wanted to show you a help page on linking.
