52 hats :: 9 - Zigzag





Oh my, this hat. It looks simple and cute, but it's totally not what I intended it to be. Ahem. I wanted to brim to have more zigzags, but the pattern I got from a magazine turned out to be too high for that. And then I wanted it to be a slouchy hat, but something went wrong there too, so after I frogged that part back to the brim I decided to get it over with and make a beanie.

Yes, it's cute and I'd probably wear it myself. So maybe things just worked out the way they should have been planned in the first place.

My knitting came to a full stop last week, when I found out that my e-book subscription featured all books by Agatha Christie too. I love them. I even have them all at home (I prefer not to think about having to get rid of them right now). I tend to reach for these books when I'm not feeling well and that's exactly what I needed last week. I've lost count of how many I read, but I think six or seven. And I didn't feel like trying to knit while I was reading them (sometimes I can, sometimes I can't). Oh well. I am back to knitting now, but I think there will be some yarn to bring home with me (only one week to go!) after all...

    1. I usually knit when T. talks to me - hmn that sounds wrong: I knit early in the morning and at night when we sit and talk and enjoy just being together, so audiobooks won't work ;-)
      Thanks!

    2. ah - :)
      i smiled at that - it makes sense, though, that you knit and visit with T - i know you aren't ignoring him. :)
      (isaac particularly loves audible - we find him a print book, and then get the same on audible - that way he can listen and follow along - it has been so great for his evening reading time!)

    3. M. did that too (listening and reading along), it really helped her reading!

    1. I do! And thanks. I like it too, even though I imagined it turning out different...

  3. Love the hat! The zigzag brim is awesome. Is it reversible? The design would be so cute if the zigzag folded up to make a beanie or down to make a slouchy hat. Gosh, I haven't read Agatha Christie in so long! Hers were probably the very first adult books I ever read. It seems you & I share several favorite authors. Did you ever read any Mary Stewart books?

    1. Yes, it's reversible. And that's a great idea! (I'll credit you when I try it ;-) )
      I read only one of Mary Stewart's books, The Crystal Cave, but I loved it. Still need to read the other Merlin books.
