Awhile back, I mentioned that I was longing to knit something. A few of you very kindly asked what I planned to knit, or mentioned that you hoped I'd post the results. I wasn't sure the results would be worth posting (I'm still a Novice Knitter), but here they are. The first hat, below, is now offically labeled "Practice" because the back of it is quite messy (will someone please explain to me how to connect the edges neatly? I'm hopelessly sloppy.)
My model, Mr. Putter, was extraordinarily patient with me as he posed for this. He did, however, have a disgusted look on his face just moments after this photo was taken.
The second hat turned out really well, as the chosen tool (a Knifty Knitter loom) did all the work for me. I added little bows that pull up the brim, and I was pleased with the final result. That one is for the little girl of a FOCUS Missionary couple we help to sponsor. For their new baby boy, I'll be knitting a new edition of the hat Mr. Putter is modeling, sans messy back seam and cat hair.
