Here’s one of the projects I used to procrastinate distract me from my Ravelympics socks. This was an extremely fast knit (2 or 3 hours), and the vibrant yarn was a blast to work with. I look at it and think sophisticated clown. Or eccentric Connecticut knitter. Whichever.
- Pattern: An Unoriginal Hat by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
- Yarn: Crystal Palace Iceland in Circus
- Needles: US size 10.5 double points
- Mods: I used much bigger needles and did an extra row of k2tog to get the closure down to 8 stitches before cinching it closed.
Not much else to say, really. I think I am burned out from the push to finish my socks this weekend. My initial plan was to take Sunday off from knitting completely to give my mind and hands a rest. By evening, however, I was feeling that itch to pick up the needles and knit! You can’t slow me down, apparently.
And after I finished this hat, I went right up to my craft room and started a new project. It’s a never ending cycle, this knitting of mine, and I love it!
