I love bulky yarn. I love, love, love it. The only time I used bulky yarn was my very first project, so I didn't really have a good appreciation of it. My knitting circle threw a baby shower for one of the knitting girls, Jen, who is having her second child in October. For a present, I knit a very cute gnome hat in some great autumn-esque, bulky yarn. And with the help of Hello Kitty, I will show you it in multiple stages.

I debated for awhile on whether or not I should add the ear flaps and pom-poms. I was intimidated by the thought of picking up stitches. Even though it was only 12 stitches...it was still scary. In the end, after searching YouTube for some videos, I finally decided to try it. And I'm glad I did! It was much easier than expected. I don't know if I did it correctly or not, but it worked.
|Yeah, Kitty-Chan didn't know what the big deal was either|
