The hat pattern came out ages ago, and now the matching mitts are here too!
I love this set, each piece is so versatile but they also go well together.
Not to mention the yarn used! The lovely LylianMae spun up some gorgeous gorgeous yarn specifically for this project and she’ll have kits available for purchase that will include one or both patterns and the required amounts of yarn, how cool is that? She is definitely one of the nicest ladies to work with and I sincerely appreciate all of her help!
Interested in making your own Pagosa Set? You can purchase patterns for the hat and mitts separately on Etsy or on Ravelry or you can purchase them as a set for discounted price 🙂
I had planned for this scarf to be my WIP for today, but there was one little hiccup in my plan in that I finished it yesterday….So I’m going to pretend like its still a WIP just for today ok?
Ok. Great 🙂
Here it is!
I am absolutely, 100%, completely head-over-heels in love with this scarf.
I love the colors, I love the texture of the simple garter stitch, I love the long fringe, Not to mention how exquisitely soft it is. I pulled out a variety of colors I could find in very soft merino, wool and wool blends and let me tell you this scarf hasn’t left my neck! (Its over-airconditioned in the buildings, outside is still 90 degrees, don’t judge).
After a frisbee game, I came home to this on my doorstep.
Aren’t you jealous? You should be! Three balls of Plymouth Yarn’s Suri Merino (Ravelry link) in one of the most beautiful grey/blue colors I’ve ever seen! My friend had gotten them for me for my birthday and she did a great job picking the colors 🙂
Now I’m trying to find something fun to make with them, I only have 3 skeins, so about 330 yds. What do you think I should make? It’ll definitely be something just for me (I have a hard time sharing anyway hehe).
Every knitter has a needle gauge. Every knitter except this one. I was browsing around Etsy this weekend looking at the various gauges out there and I always see those simple square gauges, but these fun shapes definitely made me smile 🙂
A friend of mine asked for a beanie with vertical racing stripes. Blue and white. Although vertical stripes aren’t the easiest, quickest stripes to achieve, I always enjoy a challenge and love seeing happy receivers!
I decided to knit the hat flat because of the colorwork and stranding, I’m still engineering the decreases in my head so that the white stripes won’t change shape, width or direction but I think I’ve got it mostly figured out.
Hopefully the hat will be done soon and will get an FO post!
