Midas Hat Update

My Midas Hat has a brim! I was selected for the core team of an software implementation project at work. So this week I had two loooong days cooped up in conference room talking expectations, timelines and assigning project duties. The Deputy Director of IT is a knitter and therefore understands the need to knit to save one sanity.

I managed to plow through the 30 rows of inner and outer brim and connect in the round! The yarn is just so stunning. It’s not quite as purple as it shows in the photo, it’s definitely deep royal blue. The needles are some cheap bamboo Clovers. The tips are showing their age and I swear I got a splinter the other day. This might be the last project these needles see. But for now it’s just straight knitting until I reach nine inches (or desired length) of hat. This project has been living in my backpack and has been great to pull out when I need to keep my hands busy.

Happy knitting!!

  1. Tee hee…I knit in meetings all the time; however no one knows unless I tell them because I work virtually 🙂 That color truly is stunning and I can tell on my monitor that it is royal blue. I love projects like this.
