Welcome to #MakersWednesday, my favorite day of the week because I get to share what I’m making and check out your creations!
This week I knitted up a pair of hats from one skein of yarn. This yarn – Stonehedge Fiber Mill’s Crazy – is made from leftover single-strands of yarn at a mill. The skeins are made so that there’s a specific color transition – AB to BC to CD, etc. In this case, my skein started with purple and teal at one end, and progressed to burgundy and grey at the other:
I decided it would be fun to knit a pair of coordinating hats for a friend of mine and her new baby girl, using this yarn. Just like mother & daughter are similar (you might say – wound from the same skein) yet different, so are these hats which both come from the same yarn. It worked out well that Baby’s hat started with teal/purple and progressed to purple/pink, and then Mommy’s hat starts in that same purple/pink and finishes out at the other end of the skein (pink/orange, orange/burgundy, burgundy/grey).
I’m hoping the new Mommy loves them as much as I enjoyed making them! If you’d like to make some of your own, the pattern is called Hipster, by Tin Can Knits.
