The last Wednesday WIP post of the year. And it’s fitting that it shows the last hats of the year. Well, I say the last hats, you never know with me, sometimes I just whip out a hat for no reason. But I am “intending” to knit on the sweater for the remainder of the year. Wait, it’s not 2016 yet, I can’t intend, I need to say Enough. I have made enough hats this year. 64 to be exact. 42 were charity hats, the others went to those I know in real life.
The last 4 hats were made using leftover skeins of Frog Tree Meriboo. It’s a Merino Bamboo blend that is just soon soft! What better yarn for little newborns? And it’s washable, so no problem cleaning it for the new moms.
I have enough for 1 more hat from each color. But those will wait for the new year. I intend to knit on that sweater! Remember the one, the mismatched yarn sweater? I am trying to not let my snit about the yarn derail my project. I think I am going to make the other pieces and then see what the odd sleeve looks like against the rest. I also will look at it outside to see if the mismatch is more or less obvious. Another trick, stand across the room and see if it’s noticeable. I always used that trick when picking fabrics for quilting. If you can’t see the contrast from across the room the fabrics weren’t a good combo.
The color is more a purple than a burgundy in real life.
I am 4 rows past 2 repeats. I don’t even want to know how many more repeats I have to do on the back. I am just ignoring the whole thing.
I’ll leave you with a collage of our skies the other day. Fierce winds moved clouds through swiftly, and the different sky lines were just stunning. These 4 photos were taken to the east, north, west, and south of our neighborhood as we drove home.
