I did start the other hat for hubby, but ended up hating the needles that I was using! I need a set of size 6 16″ circular needles and size 8 16″. I have a pair of some plastic, really pointed, size 6 and no 8, but can you believe that neither of them are at my local Hobby Lobby, Michaels, or Joann’s. So Mon when the kids go off to school I’m off to my LYS to get me a set interchangeable needles! I tired of needing all different needles and never having the right ones.
So until that happens I made this little hat for Alesa. Hermione’s hat that she wears in Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince. I used some Patons Classic Wool that was given to me by a lovely lady on Crochetville. The partten was really easy, even thought I only casted on 98 (I think) and had to M1 after the ribbing and I had to follow the mod that was giving in her comment section on the decreases. It really wasn’t hard to do at all and I may make a few more as gifts. Three days tops, off and on, to make and I’m slow.
The hat looks gray in the photo, but it has a more natural brown color. I still have a few days of waiting before I’m off to the LYS, so in the mean time I may start on the Luna Lovegood Scarf for something to do. You gotta love Harry Potter, I know I do!!!
