saturday the hat was being knit
sunday morning, completed, he put it on
today, tuesday, it's still on his head.
i love knitting for my husband. :)
pattern: not a pattern really, i did this: cast on 90 stitches with worsted weight wool,
knit one inch of rib, then knit for approximately six inches before beginning to decrease, knit
eight, knit two together, repeat around, knit every other row and continue decreasing (7, 6, 5...)
until knit one knit 2 tog, then knit 2 together. pull through last stitches, done!
wool: trabajos del peru, 100% extra fine hand dyed merino wool by plymouth yarn
i told him his head looked a bit like a mendocino sunrise, hazy shades of pink and blue.
i'm reading arcadia by lauren groff, i feel about this book the way my husband does his hat. although i've just started it, i like it very much.
joining with ginny and the yarnalongers this lovely wednesday.
