You know how I hate bandwagon knitting.

But I also love mindless knitting.

What's a girl to do?



Photographing your own head sucks! I miss my bathroom medicine cabinet "tripod!"


Pattern: Sockhead hat (Google away, it's Monday and I'm too lazy to link!)

Needles: US2

Yarn: Online Yarn in some color number. Is it so hard to name your colors? I guess so.

Notes: I knit this as a gift. I really like it! I didn't think I would since I'm not really a hat person, but this is a cute casual hat. I didn't modify the pattern much other than I know I didn't cast on the right number of stitches; I think I was off a few (but less than 10). Not a problem. The decreases are the only place it really matters (well ,and the ribbing) and I was able to compensate for it easy enough just by fudging along.


This hat hits the bullseye in terms of mindless fast knitting. And I used up a ball of sock yarn that had been languishing in my stash for too long.

I hope the recipient of this hat likes it.

I do.

So much so I've cast on another one--for me!

Now you see why I've made 3 and am planning a fourth already. It's a really good looking hat and it's such a comfy knit. Gotta love mindless!

I like it and I'm not a hat person either. I started a pair of self striping plain stockinette socks for my niece for my mindless knitting. I'm being kept amused by the stripes.

Does this mean that I will be casting on for another one when I'm done with mine? Maybe I'll make one for the kid....

Yes, I plan on making several of those myself! I've already decided that the Sockhead will be my knitting for the conferences I go to in October.

Very cute hate. I have lots of sock yarn I have bought on a whim - I really should make this hat.

How verrrry interesting...not that you'd know it by looking at my blog...but I've got one on the needles as's a bandwagon? I'm sooooo out of all the knitting reading loops.
