Knitting Notes



Pattern: The Proverbial Cap by Meg Swansen
Yarn: Naturally dyed wool from somewhere in the Michigan UP
Needles: Size 6 circs and DPNs

So, if you first don't succeed in making a hat for your brother, you make a hat for his partner instead!    This is for S, and fortunately, this time around, I had plenty of yarn for it.    The pattern is really interesting.    The cables are fun.    About the only place it got tricky was the decreases.    They aren't hard per say, but this is definitely a pattern that has some expectations that you know what you're doing, so I had to puzzle through things a bit before I got it.

I enjoyed this yarn.   It has a drier feel than the other skein they gave me, but is still lovely to work with.

So, with that done, I'm on to try number two for a hat for my brother.    Since I already made the other brother a Quest Hat, I figured I'd make a go of it for C as well.    Here's hoping the yarn holds up!
