Finally! I can share a finished object with you! This FO has been done for a while, but I didn’t manage to get pictures of it until this past weekend. Most days, especially during the summer, I put my hair up half way through the day. By the time I get home to take pictures, my hair just doesn’t look right if I put it down after it being up most of the day, so I end up not getting finished photos right away. Anyway, this was a pretty quick knit and total knitting time was less then a week had I not put it down to work on those German Stockings.
I absolutely love the brim of this hat and I’m playing around with the idea of making a non-slouchy, more fitted hat using this same style of brim.
Pattern: Bandwidth by Stephen West (My Ravelry project page.)
Started: July 26, 2011
Completed: August 13, 2011
Yarn: Malabrigo Rios in Solis, not quite 1 skein
Needle: US 8 bamboo circular and DPNs
Notes: Only thing I did differently was use one color instead of two. I wanted to use up yarn I already had and I didn’t have something similar to the Rios that went well with it.
Last Monday I started my final Camp Loopy project, Eadon. I think it would go a lot faster if I wasn’t alternating skeins every two rows. That sometimes causes tangles or me to stop to fiddle with the side that I’m switching skeins on. Yesterday I finished the back and started on the right front. This picture isn’t a good representation of the color of the yarn, but it does show the progress I’ve made so far. Hoping I can get through both fronts this week!
