I am knitting a Katamari Ball hat.

I have been working on a knit Katamari Ball hat based on instructions from Easliy Amused. I am using Merino Style yarn from Knit Picks in colors Storm, Asparagus, and Cinnamon.

I entered the gauge from my knitted swatch into the pattern generator for an ear flap hat that was created by The Knitting Fiend as suggested by Easily Amused.

I wrote up a pattern for the bumps which I will post when the hat is complete. I am filling the bumps with 2" Styrofoam balls that have the bottom trimmed off so they have a flat side. I covered the balls with a thin layer of batting and then stuffed them into the feet of stockings before they received their knitted cover.

I can't wait to see the finished product.

Hi there!

I own a little yarn shop north of Toronto called Unwind

We're considering doing a Color-on-Color scarf knit-a-long and I was wondering if you had any more pictures you could share to encourage our group to give it a go! Or any thoughts, feedback, comments, etc.

Your scarf is GORGEOUS!

Thanks for your help...
