I’m sure you were all waiting with baited breath to find out what I decided to do with my skein of Tosh Merino.
Well, I sat down on Monday night to start knitting, and I thought I was going to make the Annis shawl. But, then my husband put on an episode of the new MST3K, and I couldn’t focus on casting on all that lace. So instead I started on a Sockhead Slouch Hat. I love it so far- It’s a super simple pattern, so it’ll really show off the pretty color of the yarn. I love how soft the fabric is turning out. And, I think I’m going to get a lot of use out of it. It’s not crazy thick and wintery- I’ve got plenty of thick winter hats. I needed something a little lighter, for breezy spring days.I won’t lie, though, at this small gauge, it’s going to take me a hot minute to finish this hat. But it’s so simple, it’ll be good TV-watching/coffee-shop-sitting/waiting-for-class-to-start knitting. In fact, I knit about an inch yesterday morning waiting for my dog to get done with his haircut.
(Do you want to see pictures of him? Of course you do.)
Anyway, dog aside, I’m enjoying this hat pattern. Especially with some of the more *ahem* elaborate patterns I’ve been working on lately, it’s nice to make a super-simple project like this.
Have you been working on anything exciting lately?
