Wee Little Girl Gnome Hat
Sometimes I am baffled by my knitting decisions. Why didn't I just go on and choose a method and finish the hat?
I sat pounding this project. Really trying hard to imagine the best hat then I decided to try something different. What did this yarn want to be? Elfish things seemed more in line with this Musique yarn from Crystal Palace. (45% acrylic, 40% wool, 15% cotton) The color is called Valentines. I used nearly the whole 65 yards of this skein. I used US 11 dpns knitting and reducing every 3-4 rounds until the hat looked pointy and gnome worthy.
And just like that a wee little girl gnome hat came off the needles last night. It's adorable. Now to find a little gnome who needs a hat.
