Remember back in August when I was knitting something stripey at Film on the Rocks?  The stripey thing is done now and delivered to the recipient so I can post about it.

Pattern: Lucia’s Organic Beanie from Slip Slip Knit

Yarn: Omega Sinfonia in 853 varigated yellow-teal

Needles: Size US 5 double pointed needles

Confession: I am a Bad Knitter.  When the pattern says to used two different sizes of needles, I rarely do unless it seems vital to do so.  This pattern says to cast on and knit the brim of the hat on threes then switch to fives, but come on people, it’s a rolled brim hat, gauge cannot possibly matter that much.

Modificaitons: Other than the previously mentioned refusal to switch needle sizes, the only thing I changed was knitting the whole thing in the same color rather than changing colors for the purl stripes.  I figured the variegated yarn provided enough visual interest.

A nice quick knit that I think will look quite fetching on a certain young lady in Ohio.
