Sometimes, nothing calms you like a nice cup of tea. Sometimes, you have to take it to the next level and complete an entire hat in one eight-hour sitting letting said cup of tea go cold.
I absolutely freaking love this hat!!
Feeling a bit down, I hunted through my stash for one of my Special Yarns. I hadn’t imagined what Rosie, a lovely soft 8ply handspun alpaca yarn, would become when I bought it. As the months passed I thought it might make a nice hat. So I hunted around on Ravelry and found a few nice patterns, but decided to give this one a try.
Now I wasn’t too sold on the hat in the picture but thought it was still nice enough. As it happens, mine turned out a bit bigger and floppier which I love! The floppiness of my version demanded a pom-pom, to which I obliged. I made it on three fingers on my left hand, so when I cut it it came out with a funky pine cone shape
Hat being finished, I still had a nice amount of yarn left. I thought I could probably make a pair of fingerless wrist-lets with it to match. Amateur thought wrong. I could make ONE fingerless wrist-let to match.
It’s pretty neat. I like it. The One Mitt will forever be an individual. That’s what makes it Punk. Because I said so.
See how matchy-matchy they are!

I was trying to look mean and punk. Failure is always an option I guess.
