Happy Hands!!

My hands are happiest when they are moving.
Moving = knitting...click, click, click!!

I saw the hat on the cover of this book, and I fell in love...
"knits of a feather"
lot's of bird inspired designs!

I finished this hat a little while ago, 
but I never finished the feather design on the outside of the hat!

I was determined to finish it this week and share it here,
and I am close...

very close...99.9 % done but I just didn't have the time to finish.
I don't want to rush it...
and I am starting to think it may look better without the feather work.

Opinions?? it could easily be removed!!

Then it needs to be washed and blocked,
the edge is really curling, I needed the sea glass to hold it down.

This is the first project I have ever started, on my own,
from a book, with a pattern, without any guidance at all...
I'm pretty stoked!!

I am joining Ginny at Small Things 
for
Yarn Along

I love seeing your kitting projects, my friend. It's been a joy to see how you have progressed and I must say this hat is simply lovely! Well done, Debbie.

Thanks for sharing with Roses of Inspiration. Enjoy your afternoon. Hugs!

Well, you are doing a beautiful job following a pattern and I love the feather because it is forest-y and I think it honors the designer. Not that I always honor the designer. LOL!

I like it a lot!

TexWisGirl said...

i think it is cute but i like it plain, too.

Gail said...

You seem to be doing very well. I like it both ways.

Nicki said...

Personally, I like it without the feather - leaves more options to add a pin or some other embellishment. I'm sure it will be beautiful either way.

I love this hat and I also love the feather; it is adorable. You must model this one when it is completed. I am so proud that you did this on your own reading a pattern. I really have a hard time reading patterns when i crochet.
Loved this one and sending hugs your way!

I love the feather its your first piece you have made on your own so i would keep it. If no one wears it cause of the feather then send to me. Lol...
