in the Middle of the English Channel
I told you it wanted to be a hat!
Filed under: Knitting

It just wouldn’t be moulded into any thing else and I  used every single inch of it to complete the finished item.

Imgp0730 70yds of Falkland, Merino, Massam, Angelina sparkle and silver tinsel cord handspun by Hello Mango and provided by Kerrie at Hipknits. What I couldn’t capture in the photo was the very subtle sparkle from the silver tinsel and a very thin filament of silver thread that weaves its way through parts of this yarn.

The yarn was called Snowbaby and I have to say that I could see this hat on the slopes teamed with some natty snowboarding accessories. However it is more likely to find its self down on the beach with the windsufing set :-)

Do I look the part? I’m not exactly young and hip but I try :-)

The sockapaloooza socks are nearly done – about two inches to go before the toe. We are going to watch Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on DVD tonight so that should give me time to finish them.

So once they are done what is next up? Good question! In the pipeline ( but I am not sure in which order) will be the Fairisle bag that I bought the Peruvian Wool from Elann for, I have a shrug in Rowan spun to finish the I have just picked up the stitches from the provisional cast on the knit the second half and I have bought this….

To make this….

Imgp0732 Just imagine cream for green and Airforce blue for brown.

Also in the pipeline – more socks ( as always) and I have two skeins of Knitpicks Shimmer laceweight – Maple Leaf waiting to be wound into pull balls to knit into Mim’s Mountain Peaks Shawl and two more skeins in Stained Glass in the wings waiting to be her Adamas shawl too! That should keep me busy for a while.

The weather here is cold ( relatively) wet and windy – perfect knitting weather :-)

Hope you are having better weather where you are, have a good weekend.

    Well it looks pretty hip from here- I think he can definitely pull it off- besides, youth is overrated!

    I really liked the sweater but decided to wait on knitting it. I’ll watch you instead. The hat is fabulous!

    Love the hat, and you look very cool! I also like your colors for the jacket more than the ones in the magazine…

    That’s a sharp look, with the hat. :)
    I just finished watching The Prisoner of Azkhaban on DVD and got a LOT of sock knitting done during it – nothing like intense bits to a movie to make the needles fly!
