WIP Wednesday: Sweater & Hat
Here is this week’s snapshot of current works in progress…
and a hat for myself – the pleated cloche from AlterKnits — it’s going to be felted and I’m thinking I will have to do it elsewhere since we’re in the process of changing our washing machine at the moment! (read: I don’t currently have a washing machine!!) This project has short rows which I have yet to attempt, so I hope I figure it out quickly!
This yarn is o-wool and so far I really really like it.
I’ve got many knitting projects either on the go or ready to go for christmas & birthday gifts – and since christmas is less than 3 months away I’ve chosen ‘quick knits’ for most projects and i’ve had to buy needles because most were bigger needles than I have in my stash… and ouch. Big needles that are not the norm are EXPENSIVE!
Oh, and I’ve just cast on a hat for my daugther – because her spring/fall cotton one I made her last easter is too small, it keeps poping off her head!
