Greyhaven Hat
Happy Wednesday! Little change of plans this week, I have a finished knit to share with you today! I managed to snap a few photos after the fog lifted this morning.

Greyhaven Hat
I fell in love with the Greyhaven hat pattern by Robin Ulrich last year, and started knitting it around Christmas time. I made a mistake a few rows into the lace pattern and had to tear it out. This past weekend, I finally got around to starting it again! Michael took the entire weekend off from work, so I decided to do the same. On Sunday we stuck close to home, watched football, and just relaxed. I started this hat again, and I couldn't stop knitting! Worsted weight yarn projects come together so quick!

I used Sweet Georgia Trinity Worsted in Silver, that I picked up last winter at The Knot House (seriously cute yarn shop!) in Frederick, MD. I didn't want the hat to be quite as slouchy as the original, so I skipped a lace repeat. Next time I think I'd do the same but also cast on less stitches, and do less rounds of the pattern. It's a little big overall. I may try to shrink it at some point, but we'll see!

I love, love, love the top of the hat. The crown shaping is so pretty.

I loved knitting the lace pattern, it's got some really beautiful details. I'll definitely be knitting this one again! Next though, I'd like to knit either a Citadel hat, a Schwimmen hat, or the matching Greyhaven cowl. Or, everything, haha! I want to knit all the things!
