Brambles




This is the knitting that did happen over the weekend. I loved knitting this pattern - Brambles from Knitty.com.

It's charted but the chart is so easy to follow that I now really get how to read cable charts!

I love the yarn - a verigated wool I picked up at an LYS last winter. (I think the nifty pattern would show up better with a lighter, non-verigated yarn)

But the hat itself ... that I'm not so certain about. It's quite a bit of hat and I'm not sure it's the best style on me. Still, my 8 yo says it looks great.

The head band part was very sretchy. I think I've fixed that with fleece band sewn in.

I've finished this just in time - we're supposed to get slammed with a storm tomorrow night.

You did it! Was the chart easy to follow? It looks quite cute.

I am working on the Star Crossed Slouchy Beret which is going together quite quickly due to the fat yarn and fat needles. the beret is intended to match the Bella mittens I am also making.
