Being away for a week allowed me to do more than learn more about waldorf education and felt for a whole week. I was able to knit quite a bit during my free period, curled up in a sunny window. It was cold up there!
First I finished these legwarmers and hat for Elizabeth, made from Rowan Colourscape Chunky. They turned out really cute, and she loves them. We're debating a pom pom for the top of the hat.
Next I knitted Paulie this waffle weave hat in a fabulous green merino from Linda at Natural Suburbia. It came out on the small-ish side for my taste, but the yarn is thick and warm.
I also made this hat for Paul to match the scarf (both are for Christmas so shhhhh...) It came out a bit large (isn't that the way it always works?!), but he likes his hats a bit roomy. The yarn is a wonderfully soft merino, also from Linda at Natural Suburbia.
Then I used the Punta Merisoft Hand-Painted merino to make Soulemama's My Hat of Choice as I had planned. Another one a bit small. Urgh...what is going on?! I might have enough of this yarn left to make another hat so we'll see. I still love, love, love this yarn though.
My WIP is another Soulemama's My Hat of Choice hat for a friend. I'm using a slightly thicker yarn with 6 extra stitches in there. I like hats to cover the ears so I'm hoping this won't end up too big, just a little bit bigger than the last one. The yarn is a plum-colored merino similar to the green above, from Linda's lovely selection as well.
