So.. originally, I started knitting Harry Potter House Socks... but I got really confused with the heel turning business so I thought I would knit a hat while I waited for a chance to get to loop to ask what the hell the pattern was talking about. And, well, I sort of knit a whole set!
The hat is an Amelia Earhart cap from a pattern I found on the internets.
(I picked the pattern because it is entirely constructed of short rows... exactly what I needed practice with for my sock pattern!) I knit it with the same sock weight wool/nylon I used for the feather and fan scarf. I LOVE this color combo and wish I had an infinite number of skeins of it! But unfortunately, I only had the one. I knit the hat first (on size 8 needles, which makes the hat a little lacy) but had almost half a skein of yarn left, so... wristlets!
It was really fun to see the different patterns that the yarn colors made with different guaged needles (the wristlets were done on size 5 dpns).
Check out these sweeeeet buttons I found in fabric row!! Each wristlet closes with a button on the wrist and the hat has one on each ear.
(grr... arr.. I am tough. Bring it, Amelia!)
(All right, I get it. You're still hotter than me. Whatever.)
