Seed Stitch Shower Cap


I can't really decide if this hat is as cute as I think it is, or if it is too closely related to a shower cap. I've been knitting like a mad woman lately, I think I've picked up needles every single day for the past two weeks, but I haven't finished a single project in that time. Sure, I've got 3 pairs of French Press slippers all seamed up but they haven't been felted yet so they are not in fact "finished". I also bound off one side of a cotton baby sweater, but fat lot of good that does me since it still needs arms and a chest piece. I organized my life yesterday to find that I currently have (correction, HAD) 6 projects cast on, no wonder I've been doing so much knitting!

This morning I decided to finish something, decided that if I didn't get the satisfaction of binding off and weaving in, then I just might have a break down of sorts, and so I dug out the seed stitch hat and got to work. I'm not really sure how I feel about seed stitich, which is hilarious because I am gearing up to begin the mother of all projects, THE SYLVI, which is a gorgeous sweater worked primarily in seed stitch! What have I gotten myself into?

Anyways, I was very enthusiatic about this hat a few weeks ago, but started having reservations at about row 28 and set it aside for a few days, which naturally turned into a few weeks, even this morning I was contemplating tearing it out and starting fresh, but I'm glad I didn't.....

Holy shiz - that really is the mother of all projects! I personally LOVE seed stitch. It just might be my most favoritest stitch. And I do not think that hat looks like a shower cap, but then again, I have never actually used a shower cap so what would I know? Even if it does, you rock it - and if you end up not wanting it, instead of ripping it out, Ravelry has some great groups that tell you where to send hats for cancer patients... just a thought.

I actually really love it. AND those moody, rich self-portraits. Both. And the purple.

NICE!

That's a lovely hat, in my favorite color of all things! I'm still trying to learn crochet (when I have time) and all I can do is scarves (and they look like crap). Do you sell your stuff, or is it to keep your very big family well clothed? :)

Also, I'm stealing your camera. Just warning you. ;)
