Ya’ll see this? This here signifies the END OF THE DIET! I have reached my goal. Yup. I half-cheated this weekend when I bought the yarn for this hat but I was only a hat or a scarf away from finishing so it was just a small advance payment! HA!
This here is the 3-cornered hat from Elizabeth Zimmerman’s book Knitter’s Almanac. Same book that has the Ganomy hat. It was a super fast knit. I used Catalina Chunky yarn from the Yarn Tree DOUBLE stranded on size 13 needles. The only mod I did was to cast on an additional 6 sts because apparently my head is too big! Actually, it was because EZ has a gauge of 5.25 sts per 2″. Mine is 5 sts….now that I measure it!! Geeze! I made a booboo! LOL When I had cast on the required 36 sts the hat wasn’t fitting me. Go figure. Oh well. I love how big and bulky it is.

Now for my treat for reaching my goal, I’m shopping at the following two etsy shops: Yarnahoy and Adam Knits. I know what I’m getting from Adam already. It’s this DELISH colorway he has!!! Still browsing Yarnahoy.
But I think that’s it for now. Too much holiday shopping to do! So..back on the yarn diet again until the next 5 projects are complete!
