I've been knitting a lot lately. It's cold, so I guess it seems like a natural inclination.
I have a big cowl in the works, since I've been seeing fluffy knit cowls all over.
My latest finished project if this hat I knit for myself.
It's the same yarn as Colin's hat, just in a lighter colorway. This is Brae Tweed #810 in Lichen.
I really like this yarn. It's merino and donegal wool, baby llama and bamboo. So it's fluffy, but has a nice drape.
The cables look like snakes!
I bought the pattern on ravelry, and the only adjustment I made to the hat was to knit the band at the bottom of the hat about 2" wide rather than 1" like the pattern suggests.
The pattern knitted up really well. The tiny owl instructions are written very well.
The only awkwardness I ran into is that I used smaller needles than she suggested to get the gauge right.
I used size 7's, but apparently other people on ravelry use 9's or 10's to get the proper gauge. Do I just knit really tight fabric?
It snowed last night, so I'll need a hat to keep my head toasty.
Especially with a high temperature today of 28 degrees!
I finished the couch upholstery and throw cushions today, pictures tomorrow when there is daylight!
