WIP Wednesday: 45/52

I’ve had a busy week with knitting! I finished another hat, this one for myself. I’m happy to be done with hats for now.

The pattern is Sitka Spruce from Tin Can Knits. I like the look of it, but I found the stitching a little fiddley. I don’t know if that is because it was a difficult knit or because I have a cold making it hard to concentrate. I suspect it is the latter.

Now that I’m done with the hat I’m making a pair of matching mittens. I hope to finish the mittens quickly and move on to a sweater for Elliot.20181114_1335402546653718165785768.jpgA note on the yarn I’m using for this: yes, it is that bright. I don’t know why I bought fluorescent green yarn, but I think it is safe to assume I was either buying yarn on-line after two glasses of wine or it looked less bright on the website. I don’t hate the color, but I would normally not pick it. I keep losing hats, so I’m using this yarn (if I’m going to lose another hat I don’t want it to be made from yarn I adore).

Happy knitting!

    I always wonder about finding the right colour if you order yarn online. Right now, I’m lucky that i have a big stash and no reason to be ordering online, but was wondering how people get the right colour.
    The hat looks great!
