More Hats, Plus . . .
Individually, these go very quickly. Like a little knitting snack. Maybe two hours per? I think probably less.
But on the whole . . . Well, I'm considering joining the Slogalong. For moral support.
For the green hats, I've used Cascade 220 Superwash. The yellow and red are in Lamb's Pride. I think that the Lamb's Pride will ultimately be warmer, but it has less yardage per skein, so there's always a danger of running out before the second hat is finished.
And here's the plus:
Haaaaa! Take THAT, Japanese Lessons!!! (I should probably admit that I made no progress with the Japanese the entire weekend. The Japanese and the fancy knitting really do seem to be mutually exclusive.)
I'm still a little worried that I'll have a Freya Redux.
I'm pretty sure that I knit the right size this time. (Or at least chose the correct size to knit.)
But knitting Posy requires that you have a very special relationship with your tension. She is lace, so it is a little difficult to re-check your tension whilst knitting.
I did do a swatch, all those months ago, which was absolutely perfect.
And Posy's back looks to be just right.
But over time, I must have knit tighter and tighter, because the front is simply not as wide as the back.
Again, Lace. So there's perhaps more forgiveness in it than there otherwise would be.
But still . . .
If it doesn't fit me right, it will probably fit Mom perfectly.
I suppose blue is her favorite color . . .
