Welcome!

I've been knitting for over 6 years now, and I've gotten pretty good at it. I don't have much time for big projects, and instant gratification tries to run my life. Many of my smaller projects don't get posted because I forget, or I give the items away before a picture can be taken. Rest assured, I am always knitting something.

My own Mario hat!!

After making the Mario Transformation hat I got the bug to make my own version! I decided to make it Super Mario World-themed based on the fact that SMW is my jam, and it'd be awesome to speedrun it wearing a hat made just for that purpose. And now I can make versions to sell since it was completely my design! ^_^

My only qualm is that I haven't really made hats for other people so I'm not quite confident in my gauge. I used size 3 needles for the brim of the hat (which I ended up doing in 2x2 seed stitch and turned out looking wavy and interesting. I like it!), and then did the rest in size 5 circular, trying to keep the tension pretty tight.

This is how it turned out! I'd have pics of me wearing it but I got my wisdom teeth out on Friday and my face is really puffy still >_<







Thanks for reading!
