First, I want to say thanks and welcome to everybody who commented on my little old blog on the last WIP Wednesday – I can’t stress how much I appreciate each comment! They totally made my day. I loved browsing around and looking at everyone’s projects, too. Really inspiring.
I think I’m going to try and keep up the Wednesday posting, to get on some sort of regular schedule. I’m not feeling especially wordy at the moment, though; spending all day answering middle schoolers’ questions leaves me with few words and even less brain power by the end of the day. I think I’m going to stick to mainly photos for a while. : )
This is the Selbu Modern hat (Rav page here), in the Knit Picks Palette I posted about last week. I’ve loved this hat pattern for a long time, and as autumngeisha pointed out, it’s a really nice fit for the yarn. I’m having fun knitting it so far, although the stranded colorwork is sloooooow going. I know the “right” way to do it is to always hold both yarns and work with them without putting them down and picking them up , but I just end up tangling the yarns together and making loose stitches when I try that method. Eh. Who cares, as long as the hat gets knit?
I’m about to settle down with my hat knitting and watch for the impending “wintry mix” we’re supposed to get here tonight. Crossing my fingers that school is canceled tomorrow and I can sleep in! : ) Happy Wednesday!
