My One-Skein Knitted Hat


After learning to knit scarves I moved to the next challenge knitting a hat, and boy was I gong ho to do that.  My first attempt went pretty good, but I wanted to make it better, so I started over. and over again, finally I came to my senses, best to build technique by knitting plenty of hats than getting obsessed with my first, at that point I was able to complete the hat.

As I knit I am learning and understanding more like there is wrong and right side to some stitch such as the stockinette, this stitch is made up of one side that is knit and the other side that is purl.  This hat was done using the stockinette stitch but I liked the purl side better which is considered wrong side, also the purl side compliments my garter stitch scarf.

I used the free One-Skein hat pattern from suite 101 site, it very easy to follow, plus I already had the yarn and correct size needle. I was also motivated to have a hat with a knitted or crochet flower attached.

Adventures First Half of 2017

Early March 2017

My love for travel, history and exploring started with books, my natural curiosity did the rest.

NYC tour





Empire state building.






The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum




When in NYC shopping is not far from my mind, so I visited LV and got myself a present.




Later in March my BFF and I dance to Uncle Charlie in concert.





Early July 2017

Off to the races I went on a tour of Belmont Park Race Track, the place is huge and makes me wonder what it is like when they have the Belmont Stakes. There were plenty of people having picnics at the park, others there for the races.
