Browsing through Pinterest one day, I came across these adorable finger moustaches and my daughter wanted one. Since I rarely knit for my own family, other than dishcloths, how could I say no to this little project.
Tag: kitchener stitch
Merriam Webster defines parliament as a “the group of people who are responsible for making the laws in some kinds of government.” They seem to have forgotten that a group of owls is also known as a parliament. I could really ramble on about the irony of the “wise old owl” and any part of government, but I will not.
Heel Stitch Hat
Hat number three in the box going to Kenya is called “Heel Stitch Hat” from Purl Bee website. I knitted up this hat using some Caron One Pound Aran yarn in Lace, or beige if you prefer more technical names.
This hat used two new stitches the kitchner stitch, to join the top, and the heel stitch. Supposedly, the heel stitch is used in making socks, so I guess that makes me one step closer to learning how to knit socks.
I opted not to block the hat as the instructions indicated as I thought the rolled brim added more character. The hat has a modest amount of stretch to accommodate a growing child.
The pattern can be found here.
