Hi all

I’ve been away from the site for a while due to depression. Got my knitting needles back out and here is a hat for a very dear friend. It’s knitted on 4mm needles with King Cole DK yarn.

Love the colours. I’m not a knitter so that looks quite complicated to me. I’m impressed.

Thank you so much.

Good to see you back on here again too.

What a beautiful choice of colours, easy to spot your artistic talent. Hope you’re still painting those delightful flowers that you’re so good at.
Good to see you back, hope you feel brighter soon.

It's lovely. What is the stitch that makes up the main part of the hat? I knit every day, love it.

Beautiful, cheery hat. Your friend will be delighted

I knit some rows every day, colourwork so it is slow mo knitting, very calming and yesterday I watched a christmas feel-good film on prime, while knitting and enjoying a mug of tea. Bliss

Lovely colours in that hat. The stitch above the rib looks unfamiliar. What is it? You're right knitting is very relaxing when it goes right!

It's great. I love the colours. I agree that knitting is a good stress buster.
