After about six false starts, I finally found a pattern on-line for exactly the hat I’ve been trying to knit from the Koigu yarn I bought a couple of weeks ago and it’s going like wildfire now. I really like the new needles for this fine yarn.
I got sidetracked for a bit on the hat as I decided to start a pair of socks for our DD Katie to work on for a couple of days because I realized that as soon as she came home, I’d have to put them aside and could work on Amy’s hat then. Yesterday afternoon my son requested some fingerless mitts to wear for hunting, so I knitted those up yesterday evening. He’s got some pretty deluxe hunting mitts: Lamb’s Pride wool/mohair blend yarn!
