Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

Wee Weekend Stashbuster

Posted by Amber on September 24, 2006

I’ve been all itchy about starting a new project, even though I still have three sweaters to seam (Janda, Cabled Hoodie, Durrow), a sweater to finish (top down raglan), a sock (yarrow rib). But still, I was itchy to start something new. I swatched for a pair of gloves with some Scarlet Fleece. But that didn’t strike me. My hand just weren’t working well enough to start Tamarah. So finally I decided to pull out some Noro Silk Garden and make a hat.

Several months ago while trying to find a bucket hat that wasn’t the ChicKnits one, I found this pattern with a mod to make it more bucket-y (here). I’ve been wanting to make it, and had some Silk Garden that I picked up in NYC (two trips back).

Hey! I got a picture without looking like I have cold, dead eyes

I love how it happened to come together at the crown

The crown shaping is great, I just particularly love how the stripes worked out right, how they all came together.

The specs:
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden (205), about 1.33 balls
Needles: Size 7
Time: One afternoon/evening
Fun factor: 10 – easy to memorize the lace repeat but enough to keep it interesting

I did manage to get one cold, dead eye-ed photo
