I got the “new project itch” and cast on a single fingering weight hat. My theory is that this is good meeting and movie knitting that is not a sock. I mean I have like 10 WIPs going but none of them are a hat. Seems sound logic, right?
This is a skein of fingering weight sock yarn from the Wichita Woolery I snagged last year at Winter Woolfest. My mom and I just went to Woolfest 2020 here this past weekend. So it also felt right to start using last year’s haul, lol. This color is called Prism Break. It is a grey semi-solid solid yarn with a rainbow that micro stripes throughout.
I have established the ribbing portion and I’m satisfied with how the rainbow is looking. It is somewhere between planned pooling and regular striping. I was prepared to rip back to add or subtract stitches to make the rainbow look pleasing. It’s kind of nice that karma worked out for once. This project now lives in my desk at work for self-care and conference call needs.
That color makes me smile! What pattern are you using? I am in the process of making a Sockhead hat.
It’s basically the Sockhead pattern that I tweaked the stitch counts to make the rainbows not pool in an unattractive way
What fantastic yarn, that color is the embodiment of excitement! Nothing like a hat WIP to take the edge off of day to day life.
That is just fabulous yarn. I’m having a hat-knitting phase at the moment so I’m with you!
That is great yarn. I’ve been itching to cast on a hat too.
That is such awesome yarn!!!
Would of never thought about using sock yarn for a hat
