Vacation Redux, and a quick FO
I'm back! The cottage was, as always, wonderful.I finally finished my Reading Hoodie (whic is what I'm calling the Apres Surf Hoodie), but it took much longer than I thought it would. Two months!! I feel that it deserves its own FO post, which will come later in the week. For now, I'll leave you with a quick FO that I knitted up the day after I finished the hoodie and needed a quick fix/knit. Isn't it amazing how nature makes even a plain old hat photo utterly lovely? Pattern: Cabled Baby Hat Needle Size: 5 mm dpns Yarn: Plymouth Earth Mainland, 1 skein Mods: None. The pattern includes two different options, and I chose the ten cable hat, which I really love. Notes: The pattern was great, and the hat is so lovely that even G asked if I could knit him a grown up version. But my real rave review is that I. Love. This. Yarn. This skein came from a wonderful gift pack from The Purple Purl during the TTC Knitalong, and it is so unbelievably soft. One skein was the perfect amount for this little hat. I'm already planning to buy more, enough to knit myself a sweater. I can't say enough good things about this yarn!!
