[knitting] Turning Beanies into Tams

This past April, I finished a few hats:

Lotus Hat


Lotus Hat


Opus Spicatum


They've been hanging out in the "finished bin" in my craft room ever since. I wanted to block them into more of a tam/beret shape. Which I finally did:

Lotus Hat


Lotus Hat - Angora


Opus Spicatum


I love blocking things- it opens up lace, it smooths out stranded colorwork.

I'm keeping the purple and green/oatmeal ones; the light blue angora one will go to my mom for Christmas.

You always knit the most beautiful hats! What a difference blocking made - the lotus hats especially.
