So I slipped-up...


made a super cool hat of my own design with a slip-stitch pattern based on the squares of the number 2.

even the yarn is super cool - it's made of SWS self-striping soy/wool blend.

but i forgot that the super cool slip-stitch pattern makes a smaller hat than the standard stich & I need to add extra stitches to adjust.

it's ok, ET doesnt seem to mind.

it is wearable, but a little too snug.

i am hoping to find a hip toddler to give it a good home.

More retail therapy...

Like I said in the last post, I had acquired two more skeins:

Regia 4-Ply Sierra Colour

Regia 4-Ply Sierra Colour:
Left: #5538 "Jeans"
Right: #5547 "Ethno"

I sent the private message back already, but I would like to also state here (without name, of course, since he didn't use the comment): Thank you so much to you for having got me a Pro Account on Flickr to cheer me up over the break-up from my bf. I was at first very perplexed...but this was really the first time that someone actually just made a present for me, just like that, without having known me through my blog or having had some kind of contact with me before. So, thank you soooo much! That really cheered me up!

Retail therapy....

Sockyarns

(Click on the picture to go to my Flickr for the description of each skein)

My bf cheated on me on Shrove Tuesday and broke up with me over the phone on Ash Wednesday. I could see it coming already, so I'd been fortifying myself since the beginning of the week with Retail Therapy on an array of sock yarns (I'm on a StAL 07 yarn diet, with the exception to sock yarns, since they don't count as stash....but we all know that, don't we? *LOL*).

There are actually two more skeins that I acquired on Friday, but I'll post that later on.

The very first skein had already been transformed into this:

Toe-up socks on Magic loop

Started: 19th February 2007
Finished: WIP
Yarn: Regia Nodic Colour 4-ply sock yarn, colour #5510 "Trondheim"
Needle: 2.5 mm/ US #1/#2 Addi Turbos
Pattern: Universal Toe-up Sock using Magic Cast-On

The picture's a bit older now, because I've finished that one sock already (*mental note: bind off toe-up socks loosely!!*) and am almost half way through the foot of the second one.

Anyway, hope y'all are having a great weekend!
