Here's my latest hat WIP. I'm not entirely sure I like how it is turning out. I might just frog the whole thing and start over. What do you think? After working on the Claudia Hat, I really needed to do some mindless knitting. This pattern is so easy, with just simple knit & purl stitches, you can easily work on this without looking at the pattern or keeping track of which row you're on. You just "read" the knitting and figure out what to do on the next round. I was aiming for some unisex design that a guy might even wear. What do you think? Is this unisex enough? It's a roll brim hat. Do guys wear roll brim hats? Maybe I should have made it K2P2 ribbing instead... should I continue with this pattern? Or should I start over?
If this doesn't work out, then I may start the othe hat I worked out in my head last night as I was lying awake in bed listening to my neighbors from a block away having a raucous party until 5:30am. It wouldn't have been so bad if it had been even-toned voices. Instead the neighborhood was bombarded with what sounded like the vicissitudinous sounds of people watching a football game, continuous chatter with extra loud shouts now and then. Of course there was no football game in the wee hours of the night, so it must have been a large group of people playing some group game and they were really into whatever it was they were doing. Since I couldn't sleep, I got out of bed and jotted down the entire hat pattern so I could just stop thinking about it ... it's sorta like pulling it out of my head and storing it in a pensieve. :-)
