This was a test knit for Cheryl Chow of her new hat pattern and I’m really pleased with the final result!
As with most lace, the hat was a bit crinkly immediately after coming off the needles but a good block took care of that problem and the lacy texture is now being shown to it’s best ability.
I did have to supplement my original yarn choice and chose this yellow linen/hemp blend and I don’t think it detracts from the end result at all, I really like them together!
What are you working on? Have you finished anything lately?
The orange cardi is still on hold this week, all I have left to do is the sleeves but instead I volunteered to test knit a hat pattern for Cheryl Chow!
I’ve mentioned before that I like to have smaller projects on-the-go with my larger projects, yes? This is one of those.
I love the delicate, lacy detail – it’s unique and interesting to knit.
I’m worried now that I’ll run out of yarn though before the finish line! Fingers crossed that I squeak by with a yard or two left!
What are you working on this week?
