Simple Swish Bulky Hat

Abstract Vine Hat

A few weeks ago things were absolutely fuxored beyond belief a bit hairy when I was writing/knitting/editing/test knitting four patterns in as many days. Three of those patterns were for the new Fall Knit Picks color release, and one was a magazine submission. That little exercise pushed the limits of what I am able to do creativity wise, sanity wise, and knit wise. Every time I'd finish a new pattern I'd announce my accomplishment from my primo seat on the couch and my husband would look at my out of the corner of his eye. Unimpressed Maya kept swinging from the chandelier while simultaneously playing every noise making toy in the house.
I'd like to think the exercise as the Iron Man of knitting. I was either knitting, crying about knitting, writing about crying about knitting, talking about knitting, whacking my knitting, editing knitting, yelling about knitting, or working with (the hands down best in the universe) test knitters and my knitting tech editor. A sonic screwdriver would have been nice.
If I had two I'd have knit with them.
If you'd like to see the results of the most fantastic test knitters in the world, have a look at the ravelry projects for Simple Swish Bulky Hat and Abstract Vine Hat.

    I love the colors in those hats!!! You did a fantastic job as always.
    I’m crazy excited for Fall this year. Fall means wool and pumpkins to me, lol.
