Lace hat - from "Fleiri Prjónaperlur"
This week weather has finally been great in Iceland: sunny and warm... so I sat on my balcony doing nothing but enjoying the summer and decided to make myself a hat I´ve been wanting to knit for some time know. It´s impossible for me just to sit there, doing nothing - don´t know how to do that!
I had just got some beautiful kambgarn in a retro-yellow/brownish colour that I love - unfortunatly they are not selling this colour anymore so those two skeins where just leftovers in Álafoss where I always buy my icelandic wool. I´ve already made two more hat´s like this (Sparihúfur from Fleiri Prjónaperlur) for two cute cousins of mine and really wanted one for myself. The only thing I made different this time was to repeat the pattern one more time to make it bigger since I´ve got a lot of hair to cover up on a "bad-hair-day" ;-)
The interesting thing about this pattern is, that I never really understand what I am knitting (the process of the lace-pattern)... I just knit what I´m supposed to and all of a sudden I´ve got a lace-pattern I didn´t see coming! :-D I´m so happy with the result, it´s my favorite at the moment...
I tryed to make some pictures of me myself, wearing my new hat... not an easy thing as you can see:
