Finished Object Friday #55
I must be honest, the content of this post is a week old, but it is still a finished object item, so here goes.
I finished my Brattleboro Hat. I really couldn't resist casting on, because a number of the blogs that I read have mentioned it. It was a pretty quick knit and I found I loved doing moss stitch. I didn't have difficulty with the decreases at the crown, but that may be because I didn't follow the directions so much as go intuitively. I love that this hat can be a showcase for some of the buttons in my collection from Nana's button jar.

Dummy Clap. Dummy being the operative word. Me being the dummy.....I wanted a Clapoti type scarf in the size of one of my favorite pashminas, but knitting on an angle and following those charts intimidated me. So, as I searched Ravelry for patterns using the yarn I got from Stitch House, I found this pattern. I guess in my stupor, I didn't factor in the length that would be added when it was unraveled, now the damn thing is over six feet long! I like it but don't love it. The edges are tighter than the unraveled body and it just doesn't look right to me, So I will wear it until I figure out what other pattern might be a better fit for the yarn. Again, commitment issues.... :P
