swirls 3

Pattern: Fiber Trends Swirls Hat

Yarn: Noro and mystery yarn from the yarn tag sale stash

Mods: Brim knit w/ bigger needle for bucket style hat, a few rows left out of the top portion for a shorter, more rounded dome

Verdict: Knit in one day while she was sick recently, Leah is as psyched about this third Swirls hat as she was about Swirls 1 and Swirls 2. She might keep this one for herself (she says that about all of them), but has already started Swirls 4 as a gift for a friend's upcoming b'day party. Has proclaimed that she LOVES stranded knitting.


It's good that one knitter in this family is making progress on things, as the other knitter is floundering about, attempting to get Jesse's slippers to felt down to size, swatching this and that for a sweater for Scott, tossing the stash, browsing library books and Ravelry. I haven't quite settled on the next big project yet, but narrowing in on it! Meanwhile, charity hat knitting is filling the void and I have a sudden strong urge to get back to the spinning and also do some wet felting (from roving, not knitted first).

You will know when the right projects strikes you and you can't fight the urge to cast it on.

Some spinning sounds good in the meantime!
