Back at the start of the year I made a resolution. I made up a dozen bags of single skeins and useable oddments of yarn and I vowed to use at least half of them before the end of the year.
With five projects knitted and four and a half bags of yarn used I’m rather pleased with my progress.
Project 5 was a simple one: I’d bough the yarn with a pattern in mind, I hadn’t change my mind, I just had to knit ….
Fyberspates Scrumptious DK in olive green. It’s a gorgeous mix of merino wool and silk, and the colour has such depth.
I loved Everglade by Woolly Wormhead as soon as I saw it.
I love it.
The pattern was well though-out and clearly written, and the yarn was lovely to knit with. I would learn that it needed blunt needles to make sure it didn’t split. And that it wasn’t the kind of yarn that took kindly to a border terrier sitting on it ….
I gave the body of the hat a light pressing to open out the pattern.
And now I could wear in with a lot of slouch:
But I think I’m more likely to wear it with the brim turned up and just a little slouch:
There’s another hat on progress.
And I have two more skeins of Scrumptious DK (in royal blue) that I have in mind for a Clapotis. It wouldn’t be quite full-size, but it would be big enough ….
