Once again sleep eludes me but gives me extra knitting time (although I’d prefer the sleep) to finish off my orders for the owl hats. With an upcoming treatment change, here’s hoping that sleepless nights due to pain will be a thing of the past. Chronic pain is a beast to live with and I don’t wish it on anyone. I started knitting as a distraction from a difficult divorce but continued because of its relaxing benefits. Something about the rhythmic clicking of the needles is just so soothing even on the really painful days. Enough about me, on to the knitting. I finished knitting the white owl hat earlier in the week and added the button eyes to complete it.
With that finished, on to the next one. This client chose a royal blue for her hat. The yarn I used for both is Brava Worsted by Knit Picks. The first colour was called White and the one below is called Celestrial. I’m knitting on Knit Picks Caspian 5.0mm DPN’s. As you might have already guessed, I LOVE Knit Picks products. No I don’t get commission for pushing their products, I’m just a huge fan. I have never been dissatisfied with any of the products, the prices are great and they have tons of great free and paid patterns. I’m concurrently working on a great poncho kit from Knit Picks, but that’s for another time. Paid work always comes first. To be honest I have a few projects on the go but what serious knitter doesn’t? So here’s a look at the beginning of the second hat. Until next time, keep calm and knit on!
