My dream hat...

is not what you think. It's not my ideal hat or anything. Last night while I was trying to fall asleep, all of a sudden an idea for a knit hat popped into my head. I'm not really a knitwear designer or anything. Every now and then I get sick of patterns and try to do stuff on my own, but it doesn't really work out. That's when I'm stuck following patterns or not doing anything at all. Hats have always been my favorite things to knit. They are relatively fast and not time consuming.

Anyway, creating the actual bobbles and hearts part and getting them in the right places is kind of time consuming. I almost have it exactly how I want it. This hat better work out or I will be so mad. I don't really have the patience for this kind of thing. Plus, this is the first thing I've knit in a long time. I've been crocheting like crazy. I've been making washcloths, dishrags, grocery bags, receiving blankets, burp cloths and ripple afghans since earlier this year. I really like how crochet is fast, but you have more options with knitting.

I guess this is my official first post. Ciao!
