The good news is I finally got my own swift and winder. The unwound hanks were starting to pile up and Knit Picks had a good deal.
This is their web site:
So here I am vacationing in Taos and what do I do - block a shawl. I finished it on the drive up here and couldn't wait to get home to block it.
I usually don't have this problem but I just started a pair of sock for which I am using size 0s.
I made my first pair of socks about a year ago and have made a pair every couple of weeks since but this is only my second pair for me.
OK so I really like this hat pattern, what can I say, it's fun to play with. My husband made the buttons for me.
Maybe it's just me but I have a really hard time making clear and concise notes on patterns that I am working that I will understand later on.
Thanks to some great advice to keep it simple this is what I finally came up with for my Sassy hat. Thanks to Diane and Allyson for being my models.
I have this freind who is a sassy little 25 year old and she has been going through a very hard time and she needs a magic hat. I asked her what her favorite color is and she said rainbow.
I seem to always have one of these going. They are a great travel project and the pattern requires almost zero thought.
