Rainbow Hat

A finished project is always so satisfying.  My Rainbow Hat was extra gratifying because the recipient loved it too.  I finished this up a few days before Christmas, and it made the perfect early Christmas gift for Kev.

The yarn is Knit Picks Felici Worsted.  It was my first time using this yarn, and I was very pleased with the results.  It’s smooshy and soft, and the stripes are so much fun.  The pattern is the Headford Hat by Theresa Gaffey from the book Drop Dead Easy Knits.  It was a lovely pattern, and I’d definitely use it again.

My next project is already on the needles.  Another hat (for me this time!) using lovely yarn gifted to me by my mom for Christmas 🙂

Happy knitting. xx

A finished project!  I think it’s a great example of my state of mind that I cannot remember when  I began this sweet little sweater.  Sometime early fall??  The more important point is that it is finished!  Completed and gifted!

This is the Sock Yarn Sweater by Hannah Fettig with modifications to include a cowl neck and short, gathered sleeves.  This is actually my third time making this sweater, which is incredible.  I never knit a pattern more than once.  Except, of course, for this pattern.  You can check out my Ravelry page for this project here.

This time I used Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light.  The color is called Scout, which reminds me of To Kill a Mockingbird.  No idea if that’s why it’s really called that, but that’s what I’m going with.  I knit this little bitty for my brand new niece, although she won’t fit into for a while…

When I finish a project, I always soak it, then roll it out and block it using a plain old towel.  I have used a variety of soaps, but my favorite is probably Wrapture.  It smells like jasmine flowers!  I’ve also used Soak Wash and Kookaburra.  All work well.  Any knitters out there with an alternate process?
