I know that this was supposed to be road knitting. And I know that this is a finished hat perched on my back fence.
All I can say is that it’s an easy pattern, it’s a pretty yarn, and sometimes I fall prey to knitting spurts and need to bang these things out quickly. In my defense, I will take the mitts on the road. And perhaps this way I can get pattern pics while I’m away and re-release this pattern this season.
