Regretfully, I am not the most consistent blogger. I don't know if anyone even reads this blog. I read/stalk several knitting blogs so just in case someone else in cyber space needs some inspiration, I would like to be able to offer that. To help me be more consistent I will be starting some new features, (plus it might help me finish projects)such as: Work-In-Progress Wednesday and maybe Finished-Object(FO)Friday, and maybe Sunday Inspirations. Hopefully this will produce at least one post a week.
So...for this WIP Wednesday
I give you a lace and cable hat that I hope will be slouchy once it's blocked. It is made with Cleckheaton country silk 8 ply in chocolate that I bought from DBNY. Love that place, but it can be bittersweet because I love this yarn and of course it is discontinued. I am hoping this hat doesn't become a lesson in gauging because I am an idiot and didn't check my gauge because I have knit with it and the same needle size before here, but not this particular stitch pattern.
here and here, but it failed so I ripped it out thus the new design. Both of these WIP's are my designs by the way. The yarn is Naturally Caron SPA ocean spray and it's super soft, but a little splitty. I know that's not a word, but it's the best way I have to describe it.
So that's it for my works in progress, next week I have to skip because we are going to Lake Powell for some fun in the sun! No knitting in the sand for me!
