Something for the weekend

Baby Hats 5

If you want to do some brain training I would highly recommend lacy knitting.  The pattern for these little hats is very easy but you do have to concentrate.  I can't tell you how long it took me to get into the rhythm of the pattern and how many times I had to pull them back but once I had it I loved it and I love the result.

I have got quite lazy in my crafty makings, choosing simple patterns just so I don't have to think too much about what I'm doing... my mind does tend to wander all over the place while I'm crafting I think that's why I found these a little challenging. 

You seasoned knitters will be shaking your heads I know but I do feel a small sense of achievement it's been a long time since I knit anything lacy and it has given me the urge to do some more, after all it's good for the brain :)

Size 3 months.
Dk yarn and it took 25 grams for each hat
4 mm needles

Made from the stash of little bits.

 Have a great weekend!

  6. Yes, I think lacy knitting is a challenge, precisely because of the concentration needed. I have to be in the mood ofr it. But the result is definitely beautiful :-)

  7. Those are so sweet! I wish I could lacy knit, will have to learn that some day :)
