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.

Stash: Busted, or, the One-Skein, One-Night FO!

Posted by Amber on November 10, 2006

Hey! No cold dead eyes!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
The yarn: A thick ‘n’ thin homespun, a gift from my friend Abby (with bonus 2290 square feet of rainforest saved! Visit: therainforestsite.com for your own slubby, rainforest saving yarn!)
The pattern: Just One More Row’s Scallop Brim Instant Hat
The needles: US 11, 16 inch, bamboo circulars
The notes: Oy! My hands hurt! I never realized how hard it was to work with the slubby wool. The fit isn’t great – but the wool is pretty scratchy, so I was going to add a liner anyway. Hopefully it will soften up in the wash, and some blocking will make the scallops come out more (no actual work was used to create the scallop brim– the basis of the hat is stockinette, and the texture of the yarn is what pulls it into the pattern). But in all – a great way to use that one really awesome skein of handspun that you don’t know what else to do with.

I lied, there’s one cold, dead eyed photo (isn’t there always in my bathroom photo shoots? …and…
No really, does my head look like a mushroom? (my face clearly gives away the fact that I think my head looks like a mushroom)
