I've started on my 3rd Turn A Square Hat and I am still not tired of watching the interplay of colors as the stripes form on the hats. I love how the use of a different solid color changes the look of the same self-striping yarn:
Though I could knit a few more of these striped hats without getting bored, I may have to cast on for something else entirely next. As hoped, my weekend visit to Oregon included a stop by the glorious Websters yarn store, where I had a pleasant surprise in the form of store credit waiting for me. I must have returned some extra yarn last time I passed through town and forgotten about the credit I had available. I giddily spent it (and then some) on enough yarn to make 2 versions of Annabella's Cowl. So of course the lure of a new project in brand-new spanking yarn is calling my name. Luckily one of the cowls will make a nice gift for my sister, so I can cast-on for an exciting new project under the guise of Christmas preparations.
|The pattern calls for a silk blend DK yarn and a lace weight mohair|
to be knit together. I think this color combo suits my sister well.
Does it say something about my knitting addiction that her blog post title "Annabella's Cowl, or how boredom almost made me gouge my eyes out" did not deter me in the least from my plans to make not 1, but 2 cowls?
I know I am not the only one working on last-minute knitting! For more WIP Wednesday posts, join in the link party at Tami's Amis.
