sorry for the radio silence, I could come up with a bunch of excuses but I simply lost my knitting mojo for awhile and felt I had nothing to share with you. don’t worry though, I’ll definitely show you the project that killed me a little bit inside sometime this week. in the meantime, how about a sweet little pot on my last official 08 knit (I said it was late)?
yarn: romney ridge yarns, barely half a skein each color for stripes. 2 skeins laines du nord cashsilk for lining
needles: 4mm 16″ circs
date started: 12.08
date finished: 12.08
this was a simple little knit for tom using some of the yarn I picked up during our fall Maine vacation. if you want something like this, mix together whitney’s ski hat with jared’s turn a square. the lining was key since the romney ridge is definitely woolie and off the farm, but so worth it. it did soften up after washing though. I love how the colors worked together, the lemony color is pretty solid while the turquoise is more of a semi solid. I want to knit another one in turquoise and red stripes with a red lining. next time I’m going to remove about an inch worth of stitches to make it more fitted.
