When I spent the night with Daughter on Friday I took along the hat I was making for her.
She hated it. She liked the fit but hated how the colors of the Chroma were working with the yarn she had bought in Maine. One of her kitties kept me company early Saturday morning while I ripped it all out.
Instead of the Chroma I'm just going to double up the wonky Maine yarn and instead of seed stitch I am using garter for the brim. Let's hope the second time is the charm.
Since she wanted the hat for her trip to Iceland I thought I would surprise her with another hat in an authentic Icelandic pattern. This is Mosi by Helene Magnusson the author of Icelandic Handknits. If she hates this one I am NOT ripping it out. I'm keeping it.
I've also got an FO to show off. My latest Wandering Cat socks are done. Thanks again Valerie, they really were a treat to knit.
They've taken their place in the gift pile or the maybe not gift pile. I'm trying to decide which pair I will keep for myself.
As you can see I don't need anymore socks so I am only allowing myself one new pair a year. One in. One out. Now how to decide who has to go to make room in the sock drawer? They're like family to me.
