Did you know that I’m really into reddit? Yup, I get a lot of answers and help on stuff over there. I also like participating in their gift exchanges. I did the Secret Santa one last year, and am currently participating in a Hats and Scarves 2015 Exchange. Naturally, my the recipient of my gift is getting something handmade.
The gal I’m sending my swap gift to likes beanies and the color black, so this is the closet thing I have in my FO stash: a really dark green Malabrigo wool hat and matching fingerless mitts. The green really does look black in certain light, but it’s got enough variation and color to bring out the detail in the hat, as you can see above. I got the pattern for the hat out of a 2008 once-a-day knitting calendar that I got a creative reuse store. Some of the patterns in that calendar are dated, but I did like the Fishtail Hat pattern I found in it. Come to think of it, take a look at it over on Ravelry.
So, if you ever want to be pals over on reddit, I’m jennabee25.
