knitting - old projects and new
I am trying to keep to my goal of finishing projects alongside starting new ones.
Last year around this time I began knitting this diamond/lattice scarf
and completed it about a week and a half ago.
Then, I started and finished this hat in Malabrigo Chunky which turned out a little too big but, I sort of like it anyway. I would make this hat again and I love the color the robin's egg blue that hat is named for. I did the decreases a little differently then the patterns says. The color matches the Toast wristwarmers I made a few months back.
Note: The button is vintage and holds back the flap. The button was a big decision for me.
Next up, is finishing this cardigan although there are still problems with color matching but, that is another story for another post.
