I have been steadily working on my Rosina sweater, which is quite the slow burning project. Working a large piece, on size US 2 needles, with fingering weight yarn will keep you occupied for a looooooong while. Yesterday, I woke up and decided I needed a diversion. Something quick, easy, and mindless. A quick search though my yarn stash and…
By the end of the evening, I had completely finished the hat. Talk about instant gratification! I like to be a monogamous knitter, but sometimes you have to mix it up.
The baby hat is a simple beanie using Paton’s Classic Wool. It began with 72 stitches worked in a 2×2 rib. I had some cream colored wool scraps so I added a simple band of color work (just alternating the blue and cream). The height of the finished hat is ~6 inches, which is perfect for a newborn.
Three of my friends current have buns in the oven so this project wasn’t completely random. I still have some yarn left over. I am thinking a little pair of booties would help make it a nice set.
Until Next Time,
Generally, I am a monogamous knitter but lately my attention has been all over the place.
My Rainbow Dovetail Scarf is in hibernation as I ran out of yarn.☹️️
A couple of weeks ago I broke into my newer yarn and began My Favorite Cardigan. This is a really enjoyable knit. I am enamored by the color, the plushiness of the yarn, and the pattern. It is pretty perfect TV knitting. I just got past the sleeve divide and now am working the body.
I am also currently blocking a ton of hats. On Sunday, I am participating in an Artisan Fair at my husband’s school. I made about 35 hats and headbands as well as 8 scarves for the event. The hats are taking forever to dry as it has been rather cloudy and chilly here in San Francisco. Hopefully everything is ready for Sunday.
