Another Ridge Hat With Brim

Happy Sunday everyone!

I finished this hat last week but was so busy to take photos and post, well, how time flies, it's weekend again and I'm happy to have something to share with you all!


It was made with the same pattern as the one I made before for my Mom (pattern can be found here). I wanted to try it with another type of yarn and hook size, so I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease, Seaspray color and size G-6 4.25mm, bigger than the one I used in my original pattern. I adjusted stitches and shells a bit as I used a larger hook: 6 rounds for top and 8 shells for hat body. The brim was done exactly what the pattern says. It turned out as lovely as I expected!

Such a nice idea to make a sun hat for this summer, I love this hat, the color is so lovely! It also has a softy touch and so comfy to wear under the sun!

Have a happy Sunday everyone, I wish your summer is gorgeous and enjoyable!

~ Thank you for stopping by and see you soon !

Knitting WIP - My Stripped Scarf Is Done!

Hello! Hello Friends,

Thank you very much for all your comments in my last post, that's so SWEET and means a lot to me! I would love to THANK YOU, thank you for the amazing bloggy friendship!

Remember my first knitting project WIP in the beginning of this year? Oh I can't believe it's over six months! The scarf WIP has been in my closet for months then! Finally I managed myself to get it done (phewww!!!), and here is how it turned out:

I knitted in the rounds with 5.0mm circular needles, worsted weight yarn, 60 inch long (not including the fringes).

I love the softy touch and the warm feeling as it was knitted in rounds. Take a closely look when it's folded:

This scarf will be a handmade gift for my honey's sister in July, she is living in a very cold place. I love it, so warm and happy to wear, hope it will make her warm too!

Sorry for uploading so many photos for one scarf, I'm so exciting and just love to enjoy pretty pictures of my knitting achievement here! Oh I have to say knitting is really another inspiration to me! :)

That's all for this post, wish you all a gorgeous new week ahead!!!

See you later!
