More hat pics!

Remember when I said there would be a hat in my future? The future, it has come, and the hat is finished!

I spent a while knitting up the sides, finally reaching the next interesting part – the brim…

Knitting the double-layered brim...

which is folded over and then cast off to make the double layer, using a three-needle bind-off.

Binding off, for me, is always a little weird. I’m sort of feeling three things at the same time – happiness that the item is finally finished (or almost finished, with the end very much in sight), a little bit of sadness that it’s over and I don’t get to knit longer or more with the lovely yarn, and annoyance because binding off always takes a good long while (or at least it feels that way to me).Then the hat was finished… and looking very blobby.

It's finally finished! Though still looking very unspectacularly and blob-like.

So it went off to take a little bath, and afterwards it became great friends with a dinner plate, and the two got very close and hung out together.

Cute couple, the hat and the plate, right? (The plate is standing on a glass jar, by the way.)

The hat on the plate, seen from the top. I really love these spiral patterns!

And now it’s dry… so yay, new hat! And it is still cold enough outside to wear it!
