I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year.
Ours was good, quiet Christmas day (just me and Troy) and not so quiet afterwards lol.. we all got what we wanted and needed too!
With our freezing weather decided I needed a hat! not really a hat person.. Tracy (Taryl's girlfriend) loves hats so I knew if I made one and didn't like.. she would find it a good home..
First one .. I didn't like .. double knit and cables.. that will either live with Tracy or she is torn about giving it to her sister.. no photos as that one flat didn't really show much of the detail.
So from there decided, sock weight ( 4ply) and lacey would work better for me.
Taryl and Tracy had a rummage through my stash and decided on a Anni Yarn Addict yarn
In colour way Plum Pudding ( very apt for knitting over the Christmas time!)
Pattern Parnassius Apollo Beret Ravelry link
Did a tubular cast on and used 3.75 mm needle for main part
Its perfect for me and I have worn it a couple of times since.
Based on the Pattern Mitt Envy
I changed the cable pattern and worked 4 rows between cables to lengthen the pattern slightly
Perfect fit and with 4gs of yarn left over.
Anni Cashmere in the colourway Plum.. so meant to be
Wishing every one a really good 2010
Till next time xxx
