Hiberknitting

My handbag has become the holder of hats, it seems that every day I'm knitting another hipster hat. It's the perfect little project to take along with you wherever you go, it requires almost no counting or fussing and since you knit a lot of stockinette for a long time without decreasing it's great TV knitting for when you're summer hibernating. And by "you" I mean "me."

This is all the exact same colorway of Noro Taiyo but I sort of re-jiggered the colorways to suit me. I didn't like the lime greean and black in the middle of the other colors so I started cutting it out of the skein and after a while I had a big ball of yarn for a black/white/green hat. Noro is still my favorite yarn of all time, I like the crazy color surprises. And now that I've been knitting for a while I'm not at all weirded out by cutting up a skein or two of yarn and making my own color combinations.

Most of my hats are little gifts, I know quite a few hipster hat wearin' individuals.
