WIP Wednesday

I rarely remember to participate in blog memes but since it's Wednesday and I have a WIP I thought I'd give WIP Wednesdays a try. This is a new design (possibly - I might not right it up) - a simple cabled slouchy hat in Colinette Art. I bought this yarn unlabelled at Ally Pally and in my head had decided it was Tao (despite not being very silky and definitely not a DK) so I'm knitting this far too tight and will run out of yarn. Still it's very nice yarn and knitting up into a lovely and very warm looking hat so if I can work out which colour it is I'll get another skein and carry on. It's a good colour on me and I need a decent winter hat given the cold damp weather in NW England and the prediction of another hard winter. I'm already in my winter coat and woolly jumpers...

I might just be able to squeak through with what I have - not many rounds left to do after knitting group

That design looks good. I hope you have enough yarn left. I'm with you on the temperature thing. It is definitely autumn here now.

Slouchy hats are awesome, I find these most comfortable as beanies can get very hot and itchy to wear.

I love the wool you are using too :)

Denise said...

I hope you can find more of the yarn you need.

I wish it were cool enough for a sweater here in the SW US. I'm sick of HOT.
