I made a hat last night!

And I’m really quite impressed with myself. It is Foliage from Knitty knit with Lion Brand Jiffy. I wasn’t expecting to like the yarn, but I really do, actually. It isn’t obnoxiously fuzzy like it seems like it might be when in the skein and the color is really nice. The yarn didn’t snag or split and held up even through 2 or 3 froggings. For some reason, I couldn’t get the pattern to line up properly. And I really really like the way the finished product feels.

Great pattern, too. Written directions and charted–I went by written ’cause my chart skills aren’t so great and I knit it while watching a movie. TV causes too many distractions for chart knitting for me. I can definitely see myself knitting it again or adapting it for a lighter weight yarn more suitable for summer. It has instructions for chunky and worsted versions, but I think a DK bamboo version would be quite nice :D

Oh, and one last photo for the teen knitters of Rav, who are in a hair-showing-off mood. I desperately need at least a trim.

    Wow… I’m surprised that this turned out so well with the Jiffy. I would have thought it would be too fuzzy for a Foliage.

    Didn’t recognize you on Ravelry with the new Ravatar, until I came to your blog. Nice blog!

    All your work is so pretty. I really like the gloves and stitch markers – not really into wearing hats. I personally HATE Jiffy after using t for 2 projects. I have 1 skein left, if you live in the us and want it, e-mail me and I’ll send it to you.

    Such a pretty color! It’s like wine or something. And your shirt matches nicely with it.
