WIP: Yellow Camas


Well, I couldn't put off knitting up this yellow yarn any longer. I decided to go with a hat, because, duh, what's the point of knitting if you don't have a hat for every outfit? But that could just be me.

I decided to go with Camas because, 1. It's hella cute, and 2. I think that the crown looks a little bit like the sun, and I'm cheesy and like to knit things that look like the sun with yellow yarn. I wound up the first of the skeins during play practice last week, and started the garter stitch brim.

It's just a little bit of a start, but I'm already charmed. We'll see how much I actually get done this week-play rehearsals are starting to ramp up, and I have to go west for work this weekend, too. But this whole concept just seemed too charming to leave for later.
