Hats 265 to 266: Freaked out

Two freakish hats made of eyelash yarn


D’you know what? Anxiety, it sucks, it really does. The wonderful Hannah gave me some balls of crazy eyelash yarn (she’s also making me a corset! and a baby! but she is keeping the baby), which I don’t like working with, but it makes some great hat brims. I had no other wool on me but everyone else was knitting, so I thought I’d knock up a quick tiny hat entirely of eyelash yarn. What’s the worst that could happen?

I will tell you! Knitting with the eyelash yarn made me really really overly terrified. Properly stuck-in-a-tiny-box terrified. I had to put it away in my bag, and I finished it later with ordinary yarn because I couldn’t face the eyelash stuff again. Which is why the hat on the left is mostly eyelash yarn, with a blue bit on the top. It’s like a big fuzzy wig with a tight-fitting hat on top, no?

The second hat was more, er, under control. And I’m still up to date!

    Do you hold the eyelash yarn with regular yarn? I’ve found that’s the only way I can stand using it. It’s just so gross.
