Distracting

I watched The Amazing Spiderman at the movies. It was forgettable, and not as good as the Sam Raimi versions.  But anyway, during the movie, one part was particularly memorable.  Gwen Stacey/Emma Stone rocks up at Peter's place for some reason... wearing this friggin amazing beanie!  I could not focus on the movie because of this magnificent pice of knitwear.  Just look at it! 

Don't cry Emma, you are wearing an amazeballs hat!
Of course, some clever Raveler wrote this up as a pattern!

Here's my version.  Can you believe I hadn't made a hat for myself?  This hat has EVERYTHING a girl needs.  BOBBLES.  CABLES.  A BIT OF LACEWORK.  EVERYTHING.




Once again, photography stylings of the wonderful Clara.

Pattern: Gwen Stacy.  I've noted on my project page the mods I've made - essentially lengthening it for maximum slouchiness.  Srsly, I thought it was too slouchy for a while, but it seems to have relaxed a bit and is just slouchie enough.  I used this blocking method and am now addicted to blocking hats!
Yarn:  Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 8ply
Ravelled here.

  6. I love that the movie was forgettable to you, but not the hat! You are such a knitter at heart. I'm personally hopeful for the new superman movie, the directors involved make it promising. It will either be a perfect mix or a huge disaster. You always look so satisfied when showing off your knits, you definitely have a reason to be, yet another perfect project to add to your collection!

    1. god DC really need to get their act together with movies. I think the new Superman looks a bit boring. Superman is not very charismatic I think. I think I've been spoilt watching gorgeous tony stark ham it up!!

      Thanks so much for your kind words, I think my look of satisfaction is more of a 'what face to i make', i am not a natural model!

  8. Good to know you could find something redeeming in a movie that burned up a couple hours of your life. That hat is amazing! Great job, it suits you well.
