Beezee Hat

This hat is actually for me, but I had Miss Bug model it because she’s a convenient model.

It’s reversible! I knit this out of my handspun, a loop bump. I just started from both ends of the bump. I didn’t get through as many colors as I had hoped, I’ve probably got enough for another hat, to be honest. Though I might choose fingerless mitts or something instead.

I had a bit of trouble with this hat, and started the decreases way before they were supposed to be started. Which then made it so that I had to rip back, but ripping back brioche stitch isn’t that easy. I got smart, and put the hat down for a couple days, which mitigated my frustration. I really believed I’d need to rip the entire thing out and start over! I was willing to do so because I really did like the hat.

Thankfully that wasn’t necessary in the end, though I had to rip back farther than I wanted to.

This week’s fun thing…I did something I haven’t done in more than 20 years. We went roller skating!

I used to be able to skate very very well as a teenager, but I was quite nervous it wouldn’t all come back to me. The first few moments were sketchy. And then I got faster and faster, and by the end of the evening my crossover turns had come back to me. I still won’t spin myself around, go backwards, or do twirls. BUT, I’d say for one night, that was good progress. Now I want a pair of rollerskates for christmas, so that maybe I can not be nursing two huge blisters from rental skates. Because most of us who went last evening agree that we must do this on the regular.
