Alright, second post time!
I saw this hat that Jen from Grainline Patterns made, and knew I had to make one in mustard yellow. It had been a while since I’d knitted anything, and I forgot how relaxing it can be! This pattern was pretty easy to memorize once I got the hang of it, and I think it took me less than a week to make the hat.
I love the combination of cables and lace! In fact, I love it so much that I’m currently using a modified version of this pattern to make a scarf (kind of late in the Texas winter season, I know, but so it goes.)
There’s a TON of great patterns on the BrooklynTweed website. I think at some point I’d like to make this cardigan, although I’m sure it will take me months and months so I’d better start around July!
Does anybody else like to have a knitting project going on at the same time as a sewing project?? I like it cause I can take my knitting basically anywhere, I’m not tied to my kitchen table like I am when I sew. And like I said, knitting is pretty relaxing! The repetitive motion, the clicking of the needles, it’s just nice. Time to go work on that scarf, I think!
OH ALSO did y’all see the Wardrobe Architect challenge over on the Coletterie? I really like the idea of designing a whole wardrobe, and being really mindful of where I get materials and why I’m making things. So I’ll be trying that in 2014 as well, it should be fun!
