Today I was able to get some photos of my finished Shedir hat, the third. I really do like the rich coloring of the yarn and it didn’t take up as much yarn as I thought it would. I still have enough yarn left for another hat or maybe a lace scarf.
Pattern: Shedir (link to PDF) from Knitty, Fall 2004
Started: July 1, 2007
Finished: July 30, 2007
Yarn: Kindred Spirits Yarn in purple
Needle Size: US 3 bamboo circular and DPN
Notes: This is the 3rd time I’ve knit this pattern and I’ll probably knit more in the future. I really like how it comes out, it’s well written (though I do the last bit of chart on my own because as written, it makes a little "nipple" at the top), and it’s enough patterning to keep me interested. It goes quick enough that I don’t get bored with it either.
For those that don’t know, I collect stuffed animals from the Build-A-Bear Workshop. I have 10 so far and yesterday I added another to the group:
This is the special edition Autumn bear. Her name is Sasha :o)
Well… it’s time to go get some dinner. Have a good night ya’ll!
PS: Anyone know what to do with a bunch of scrap yarn? I used to get yarn samples from the Yarn of the Month club and I have a box full that I don’t know what to do with. I have everything from lace to bluky yarn. Suggestions much appreciated!
