Dreary Weekend

I’m tired of winter. I want it to be over. After spending a few weeks in Thailand I find myself just wanting to be there instead of here! I’ll stop whining and show you what I’m working on. A nice bit of colorwork. One mitt down , I hope I don’t lose my steam. I famous for not doing the second mitten, I never have this problem with socks.

Every time I start a new hat pattern I get so excited. This pattern did that for sure. I love the little cocoons that it created. The hat came out a little on the small side by that’s okay I will donate it anyway.

Sometimes I just like to knit hats to clean up yarn that I don’t really like. The Mini Mochi yarn used in this hat is okay if used as an accent- lets say in colorwork. The colors available are simply georgeous. On its own I’m not a big fan. I held two strands of fingering weight together and this was the outcome.

I love any pattern that creates texture and this one fit the bill perfectly. I knit this out of Debbie Bliss Fez ,

December was a blur. I did do a lot of knitting but failed to blog. I was really too busy going to holiday parties. Thinking about going to Thailand that time just slipped by. Can you believe I was more concerned about what knitting to pack than the clothes I would be wearing. Here is one of five hats I knit before leaving on holidays. I used Debbie Bliss Glen.
