I purposely ended with a complete striping sequence for not other reason than whimsy. I used all but 26 yards of this 218 yard skein. It is a decent sized that can roll the brim or be worn slouchy.
In my stash I have matching Knit Picks Felici sock yarn in this same color. So next up in my knitting plans is to knit up some vanilla socks to have a matched set. I haven’t decided if I’m going to keep the set or put in my gift box. The matchy matchy is just filling some sort of need in my crafting brain.
New Year and new cast on! I had some training this week so I decided that a basic beanie was the way to go. I grabbed the skein of Knit Picks Felici worsted, mostly because I required no winding, lol
I cast on 80 stitches on a US 8 needle. I worked 2×2 ribbing until it looked good. I didn’t really have a pattern in mind. The goal was to stay awake while listening to a four hour lecture. The good news is that four hours is enough time to get 60% of a hat done!
I think I need two more color stripes and then I can start the decreases! Happy Knitting!!
I fell down on black friday on the knit picks website. I needed two skeins of Knit Picks Biggo to finish my Peace Blanket and some how a bunch of other yarn jumped in my cart. I managed to snag coordinating sets of Felici. I got Felici Worsted and Felici Sock in the Goth Kitty and Punch Bug.
I am envisioning matching hat and sock sets. How cute would those be for future gifts? And if I get the sock yarn cranked into sock tubes they would be really quick (relatively speaking) gifts. At least that sounds like a good idea, lol.
