it really is amazing


When I encountered mossy green following a swath of teal blue in this Ruby colourway yarn I was delighted. It may not be Noro, but I like it. I like this Amazing yarn a lot! Already I'm thinking about getting more to make an Entrelac blanket. It'd make a lovely blanket, don't you think?

The resulting hat is big, soft, warm and fuzzy. The brim rolls up three or four inches and the body of the hat easily covers my ears. I'd make it a touch smaller if I knit this hat pattern again, but overall, I'm pleased with it. There's something so comfortable and soothing about big, chunky garter stitch, isn't there?

Next on the needles is a pair of mystery fingerless gloves for a KAL in one of my Ravelry groups - an easy knit as well. The clues are arriving at a very sedate pace, much slower than I knit, perhaps because the KAL is meant to last the entire month. I guess I'd better pick some yarn and a pattern to knit some socks at the same time.

Cute --- you did a great job on the pom pom. Mine always turn out wonky.

The hat turned out great. It looks so warm! I was just at Micheals and didn't see that yarn. Now you have given me an excuse to go back.
