you may even call it…Unoriginal!
Pattern: Unoriginal Hat, by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
Yarn: 2 50 gram balls Lana Grossa Royal Tweed held double
Needles: 10 1/2 magic looped
I’ve already finished mittens to match,
and I’ve started a scarf (although I’m going to have to pull it out — again — this is attempt #3) to match. I’m having to work around severe yarn restrictions — I’m about out of blue. The cream color you see is actually 2 strands held together. One is a tan/khaki Patons classic merino, and the other is undyed BFL.
It’s nice to have such a quick project — I did the hat on Monday & Tuesday, one mitten Wednesday, and finished up the 2nd today. Can I knit a scarf in a day? 20 sts. on 10 1/2’s? We’ll see. This set is for my husband’s Grandma. She’s coming up from Florida the week before Thanksgiving & I want to mail this out to her asap so she doesn’t buy something else (but I want it to be a surprise, lol).
Back to the needles! How ’bout that election, by the way… 😉 I’m happy, hopeful, and impatient. Please don’t let us down, President (elect) Obama.
