Generally, I like to think of myself as a fearless knitter. I knit, I try stuff, I rip it if it doesn't work. I don't generally decide to do stuff that's out there on the edges of wild, and I'm not really a designer like many of my knitting friends are, but I'm not afraid to just wing it and hope for the best.
The exception? Colorwork. Intarsia, fair isle, all of it, completely irrationally you-can't-make-me, horrified at the thought of it.
But the end results are so beautiful. And that makes me want want want. Yet, somehow, I've never gotten over myself to dive into it. Until now.
I present to you Knitwhits Siena hat in the Fiesta colorway.
Here's the whole hat.
This is my favorite part - the braided edge
And me, modeling my creation
I'm so freaking pleased with myself. Maybe now I can work up the nerve to tackle the Ladybug sweater.
