Pattern :Gwen
Yarn: Jaeger Roma {Angora, Rayon and nylon)
Needle:US 6and US 10

I started this hat a few weeks ago and have recently finished it I only had 1 ball of each color so thought a stripy effect would be nice, I think it gives it a retro feel and since the colors are that far apart it's not to loud. The yarn was a dream to knit with very soft, it also has a fair amount of elasticity in it so I Use a smaller needle to cast on 90 sts then inc to 135 sts on size 10 needles for the Lace section.
Overall a great easy knit. I am sure it will make a great gift, or i make just keep it for myself (muhahaha).

Six more WIP's so no new project to CO until they are finished. So I need to get cracking because I have so many projects I need to finish before the end of Summer. I have a plan to knit all my Christmas gifts again this year but I'll see how that goes, I know I have been saying I will knit that Cobblestone Pullover for DH forever but at last I am one step closer because I have the yarn it's a wool silk tweed blend so it should be nice. I also would love to be able to knit either February Lady Sweater by Pamela Wynne or Wrenna: Leather-laced cardigan by Kristeen Griffin-Grimes for myself I have yarn that i could use for both so that's good.

I am on a quest to put a severe dent in my Rav queue so if I can finish at least 1 large item every few weeks along with at least 3-4 smaller knits like hats or bulky projects than I should begin to make a dent in it, don't get me wrong I am not trying to speed knit because I knit for relaxation not for speed but at the end of the day if I continue to queue and don't knit anything I will never learn anything either, because each project should teach me something new or reinforce a technique learnt before. And for me that's what my knitting journey is all about.

Ciao my friends I need to go pack my overnight bag for the hospital tomorrow. bye


  1. The hat is gorgeous....my colorway

    I'm with you where most of the time I want to learn something new with my knitting project. However, sometimes I also need "mindless" knitting.

  2. Again, my prayers are with you. I love your hat, the color is perfect and it looks very soft. I have been looking and looking and looking at both of those sweaters also. One day I tell you, one day.


Hi tell me what you think
