This is the first four or so inches of the hat. It self stripes, and the picture is not as pretty as the actual object. It's a bit brighter than this shows. (US size 7 needles, in the round, 2x2 ribbing, knit in the round.)
Now, about the yarn. It is extremely soft. Oh, so, so, so soft! It's like knitting with clouds. However, it is a bit splitty, and care needs to be taken so that it isn't split asunder whilst poking needles hither and thither.
That said, I am really enjoying working with this yarn. When this bit of knittery is done, I think I'll make myself a hat and scarf with what I've got in my stash. If I can find it. Of course I'll be able to find it! I'm going to catalogue all my yarn this summer. Right?
Right. I hope I live to see it.
My Thursdays have taken a wonderful twist, since a few of us from the library programme are meeting for a lunch-time stitch and bitch. It lasts a couple of hours, and it is one of my highlights of my week. This, along with Nine Inch Needles on Mondays are my favourite times of the week.
Which reminds me, there are only three weeks of school left. Three weeks, three papers.
