A little me time...
|Blogger is having a better day today, so I can show you what will be going on the needles once I finish Kyle's "Da Bears" (tm Bezzie) Socks: These 2 skeins of yarn are destined to become this hat:|
The previously secret project made it to it's destination, so here it is in all of it's glory.
It's a modification of Ev's Tentacao Toque pattern. The top shaping is lifted from the clapotis cap pattern I used Paton's Classic Merino and Katia Mexico; the brim is knit with a strand of each, and the remainder was knit with 2 strands together of the Classic Merino. The 2 yarns coordinated so well that I couldn't resist picking them up and knitting something with them. Luckily I know someone who looks good in pale blue.
These yarns are going to be a brioche stitch scarf: This was the last skein of KidLin in this color at the LYS (I don't know what it is about me and orphan skeins), and the silk/merino yarn was the perfect match. It's going to be interesting to see what the texture of the final product is going to be. It is taking all of my willpower to stick to the socks before starting one of these projects. I think the fact that both of them will require hauling out the swift to wind the skeins into balls is my saving grace.
