Gnomey Hat…DONE!

Look what I finished over Thanksgiving weekend:

Pattern: Gnomey Hat by Hello Yarn
Yarn: Deborah Norville’s (I know…right?) Serenity Chunky
Needles: Size 10 DPNs
Accidental modifications: not knowing the difference between garter stitch and reverse stockinette (I know…right?), the section that is supposed to be garter curls pretty severely. Having already pulled the whole thing out a couple of times by the time it was pointed out to me by a more experienced knitter, I opted to just let it go. Deep breaths. Luckily Clementine hasn’t complained (noticed?) yet.

Here it is, prior to end-weaving, on its (I think obviously pleased) recipient. Pretty happy grandpa too, eh?

  1. Cutest little gnomey I've ever seen! Love it! And the yellow and gray, scrumptious :). You can send both (the yarn and the gnomey) my way!!
    Happy Holiday Crafting!! πŸ˜€

    How are we coming on that new bag pattern? I'm sure I'll need something to work on in the next few weeks ;).

  2. Sweet hat- nice work πŸ™‚ (And that IS your dad, right? Because I can see a certain resemblance πŸ™‚

  3. I know we're all our own worst critics, but I actually like yours better than the original! πŸ™‚ And that is one happy grandpa!

  4. I love the hat, but you could put anything on that adorable child and it would be amazing!

  5. Rae – I love reading your blog. Clementine is so very cute, a spittin' image of her brother (: Great job with the knitting. You continue to be a craft inspiration for me!

  6. Looks good! You could always sew some cotton flannel or polar fleece on the earflap part to keep it from rolling.

  7. Thanks for the comment on my blog! the spray adhesive is just elmers. It works pretty well but has an abominable smell. (Just like adhesive should!)

    Yay Michigan crafters!

  8. Looks fab and your little girl is so gorgeous!!! I'm going to have to finally get this pattern out of my "make someday" to "make soon" for our baby due next year. Happy Holidays to you and your family.
