My hat is done! I even got my ass to the post office and sent it off. Of course I procrastinated on this hat so long that it is now finally not cold in Wisconsin. It’ll get some use eventually, I hope!
My Rav page here.
Pattern: Molly by Erin Ruth
Yarn: Malabrigo Rios in Niebla, about .8 of a skein.
Needles: US 3 for ribbing and US6 for the body
Start Date: April 19, 2014
Finish Date: May 11, 2014
I made a few changes to the pattern. But it turns out that I took pretty crappy notes and don’t quite remember. I started with twisted ribbing instead of regular ribbing. I think I started with fewer stitches than in the pattern. Maybe 88? After the ribbing I increased up to the amount of stitches as in the pattern. Some people started their decreases much sooner. I might have knit one cable repeat less, but maybe not. I just kind of eyeballed it as to when it looked long enough.
I also decided on my next project. But I haven’t gotten around to actually casting on! I am going to knit the Medallion-Edged Shrug from knit.wear Spring 2012. I finally, maybe, got gauge using Forbidden Woolery Pride Lace in Goldilocks.
A yellow cropped cardigan. A little much? Maybe, but I’m excited to actually get going on it. Too bad all I want to knit on is Lyra!
