See….I did mention I’d got back into the swing of things. I’ve been knitting non stop. I’ve been like a knitting machine, churning out one project after another. I’m buzzing, I’m on a roll!
Yarn used: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Solid : Colour Slate Needles 3.25mm
It’s a strange colour, kind of gray, then it looks teal and other times its green. I found these cute little buttons in my department store, almost exact in colour as the yarn. I didn’t want them to take the eye away too much from the lace. They look slightly green in the photo though but they have a lovely marble effect.
Next, is my lovely Kat by Kim Hargreaves from the beautiful Precious I love the patterns from this book, very elegant and beautifully photographed.
Again, knitted in the round by omitting the first of every round and reversing the sts of every even round. I left out a couple rounds so it’s less slouchy….I learned not to knit hats that are too slouchy.
Rowan Kid Classic in Peat colourway. I have to say I am really inpressed with this yarn. Its lovely to knit with and feels so so soft. It’s becoming one of my favourite Rowan yarns.
Needle size 3.75mm for the rim and 4.5mm for the body. I did fear it would come out huge but it fits just perfect.
Now I just have to knit another, really I do.
Last, there’s Evangeline, fingerless cable mitts for my sister.
…using some left over Rowan Aran Wool. Should have made them a bit longer though. Oh well….hope she likes them.
