Hat and Arrows

This is a new adventure in knitting for me, which is super exciting to learn more. This technique is kind of hard with tension and changing between holding each color strand of the yarn. For the knitters out there, it's all about the tension and making sure the yarn isn't pulling while picking up the new color to knit for pattern. I kind of lost my cool the first time I've tried doing something like this. Which of course the best thing to do is just put it down and walk away. Come back to it when you are ready and refreshed...which is what I did. This hat was the first of the projects that I felt like I knew what I was doing. The picture below shows how it's look after finishing the first set of arrows. I don't know about you, but I get really excited when I start seeing a pattern or that point when things are really coming together for a project. Plus that yarn combo!!

I don't normally do this, but I decided to put it on and model it so you can see the slouch and how wide the band came out. I fell in love right away and I hardly ever keep one of my projects, but this baby is staying with me. Also it will be added to my store soon with color choices...gotta have the color choices!
