I knitted myself another new hat on Sunday, with more yarn from the stash. The actual color is a little more pink than it appears in the picture, more salmon pink than apricot.
The pattern is called "smocking" in my knitting book of patterns, since it resembles a type of sewing called smocking:
I now have a total of 4 hats:
- the black fabric one that was a gift from my niece (along with the scarf)
- a black knitted one that I bought from the dollar store
- the black and grey one I knitted earlier
- and this peach smocked one
I think I have enough hats for my immediate needs. I might make one or two more, later on, after I see how I like the feel of these hats against my scalp.
In addition to knitting myself a new hat, I went grocery shopping on Sunday afternoon, watered the front garden, visited a friend (and gave the birthday quilt to her daughter), and did a load of laundry. It was a fairly relaxed, yet productive day.
On Sunday, I was grateful for:
- A new hat
- My yarn stash
- Having learned to knit
- Visits with friends
- Washing machines
How was your Sunday?
