Okay, I’m about two rows into the cotton knit lining for Andy’s hat — my second WCTP. (The first was a bit snug for my husband and we figured would fit Andy similarly so I gifted it to Kara — who it fit beautifully — and started over.) I want to put Andy’s name in the lining. I used this generator to chart some cheesy celtic lettering and I’ll probably start knitting it in on row 6. The problem, of course, is that the generator is for x-stitch, not knitting, so the lettering might appear a bit squooshed. Maybe not, though — I found the generator link on this beautiful blog, where Mrs. Frick used it along the bottom of a knit sweater and I think it turned out swimmingly.
When I’m done with Andy’s hat, I might cast on a pair of WCTP mittens for myself. Haven’t decided for sure yet.
Project: WCTP hat
