So the date of my upcoming fight has been fluid, to say the least. A number of things have to come together in order for the evening to take place. You have to schedule the venue, the doctors, and the officials. All of which have been mismatched at some point during the last month.
But you know it's got to be official when flyers are being posted:
I only have to weigh in 10 pounds lighter. (5 by my scale at home. I wish this were the accurate one). Arrggh!!!
But there is another official event - FO: Droplet Hat
The Droplet Hat from Knitting Nature is complete!!! This one is made from leftover Aracunia Nature Wool. My gauge was dead on - for stitches per inch. Unfortunately, My row gauge was a little off. So the hat is shorter than I would like to wear. So it's not quite complete.
See those pink strands of yarn? Those are going to be the center of the earflaps that I am going to knit. I'm just trying to decide if I should knit those flaps in seed stitch or with a line of bobbles on a purl back ground. What do you think?
I'm also considering putting a pompom on top.
After my discovery of the row gauge debacle I did a little searching on the 'net for finished droplet hats. Of the ones I found, most looked a little too short, so if you were planning to knit this pattern up, I would recommend adding in a few extra rows.
