Blimey an FO! That's the distinctive double hem actually framing my face up there and here's the rest of the hat keeping my head cosy in the March sunshine. It's glorious out there this afternoon but not much real warmth to add to the light yet.
Yarn: Fyberspates Scrumptious 4ply - Teal
Started: February 7th 2011
Finished: March 5th 2011
Apparently I've been knitting this for just under a month. It feels longer, perhaps because I've not been knitting much else so I've only actually been knitting a tiny little bit each day. It's good to finish and to know again that all those little bits do make a difference. Stitch by stitch.
I'm a smidge disappointed with it overall. It's a little bit large - I carefully measured to work out what size I should make and then let fly without swatching. Sigh. The fabric on the 4.5mm needles I used for the straight section is a little loosey goosey (the 4mm dpn section is much nicer) and with the silk content of the yarn as well it's all a bit floppier than I hoped and dag nammit it doesn't instantly transform me in to an uber-stylish being! Still the colour makes up for a lot and it's still a super cool pattern. I just need to work on my super cool attitude, not pull it down too far and get the slouch slouching.
Or just enjoy the sunshine and flowers.
Though we're a little more wintry in our garden still. This is one half of the daffodils that have so far bloomed.
Look at all those daffodils! Gorgeous!
Yeah for flowers and spring.
