No increases after 2 x 2 ribbing
Knit for 7 inches, began decreases by putting a marker every 24 sts. Son asked for long hat that could be pulled down without using the ribbing….
I am sure it is impossible to take a detailed picture of a black hat.... Almost as impossible as making the darn thing. (Kate agrees!) Fortunately it's all st st so it's knitting that can be done without looking at it. I watched 21 while making most of it. There were several rather tense spots in the movie, so knitting was fast and furious! Really good movie, BTW, if you're looking for something to watch during brain dead knitting.
My next project, another hat, is Meret.
Here's a pic from Dyed in the Wool. I got a skein of Noro as a gift and haven't found anything to do with it. So, this is what I've found. I'm not sure it'll work out as the yarn is really awfully scratchy, although many say it'll soften with washing.... dunno...we'll see...
I really want to make this sweater for myself. However, I'm built like this:Do you think a design like this would just exaggerate the belly and butt? I'm thinking there is no way to avoid it even if I lengthen the sweater. Opinions?
I'm not really one to jump on the band wagon every time a new yarn or set of needles zips through every knitting info source on-line. However, I think I've found one I want to try when it comes out...and my new LYS, Grandma's Spinning Wheel, is going to carry it. Mini-Mouchi is a very pretty sock yarn... I'm not too thrilled about the fact it takes two skeins to make a pair of regular socks... Cuz I'm sure the price is gonna make it way past my price range. But it is pretty! Here's some pics of it knitted.
