It is hard to resist knitting them. They are just so darn cute. Take this hat. It's little and soft. Has a cute umbrella stitch pattern around the edge. It has a sweet little purple ribbon. I bet you think this was a joy to knit?
Absolutely hated knitting this thing. It wasn't the pattern, it was the yarn.
This is only my second time knitting with cotton, but it will be my last. I am not a fan. It makes my hands ache. Badly.
My hands haven't hurt like that since I first started knitting.
From now on...no more cotton. My poor hands will thank me for it.
Oh yeah, project info...
