A few posts ago I showed you my finished Starry Night Hat. This was a slouchy hat I knit up in just a few days and was quite proud of it. I love the pattern; Star Crossed Slouchy Beret. And I loved the yarn: MmmMM Malibrigo Worsted in Amoroso. So had to be a great fit right? Not to mention only the second time I have actually used the yarn called for in the pattern. Must be something with Malibrigo since the firsts time was the Citron. But in my post An FO Christmas Eve I didn’t like the hat. Not the project itself, but how it looked on me. I just didn’t think it worked.
This week I was determined to wear it, and make it look good! I actually did my hair yesterday morning, wore some red so the hat would match, and put it on. Most importantly? I put it on the RIGHT way! Of course I love it now! I have embraced the beauty of the hat (and just dealt with the fact that it just isn’t made to keep my ears warm!) I learned a lesson by doing this. Many of my knits I may not like, or think I like, but until I go out of the way to try it with the right clothes and hair I really shouldn’t judge.
