Contentment's Crown

My crown is call'd content,
A crown it is that seldom kings enjoy.

Contentment's Crown

I spend a lot of time thinking of things to knit. I spend more time thinking than actually knitting, truth be told. 

At one point I spent a fair amount of time contemplating hats. I became obsessed with millinery. With the help of Project Gutenberg and a few great vintage text, I may have a thing or two worthy of a go.

With Contentment's Crown (the name a paraphrasing of a line from Henry VI), I got to try a thing or two. Using seed stitch, I got to work a bit of shaping, then I fulled the oversized hat, and blocked it. Minimal wet shaping was required. Pretty happy with it although it is a tad smaller than I had hoped.

Trial #2 up next and hopefully I shall have a couple of fulled hats for the next collection.

Content, I am.
