Knitting Resolutions: Project 5

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 ….

The Yarn

Fyberspates Scrumptious DK in olive green. It’s a gorgeous mix of merino wool and silk, and the colour has such depth.

The Pattern

I loved Everglade by Woolly Wormhead as soon as I saw it.

The Result

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:

Coming soon

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 ….
