Procrastination and a tiny baby hat
I have a list of knitting I need to complete. After Funchal Moebius, I was supposed to start a Through the Woods Hood for a friend, who purchased the yarn for it nearly a year ago. It's been the running joke that he will now receive this hood in winter 2016. I wanted to prove him and everyone else wrong. The hank of Cascade Eco + is now wound and ready to be cast on. And cast on I did. But I cast on this instead.
It's a Cloud Snood that I purchased in a kit at Wild and Woolly Yarns last weekend, using Rowan Kidsilk Haze and Rowan Amy Butler Belle Organic DK.
It's my first time knitting with mohair, and I must admit I'm not really a huge fan - it's like knitting with cobwebs. It's all sticky, but on the needles it's really slippery. I don't know if I'd make anything else with it in the future, but I'll finish this project and maybe give it to a friend. I'm not a huge fan of pink but I quite liked these colours, so I'll see how it turns out. If I don't get too frustrated with the mohair, that is.
I will get back to the hood. I just feel a bit over them - I have knitted two before, and I feel like I still need a bit more time to move on from the last ones.
But I also finished this!
Look how little it is! I used Bright Colours Baby Hat by Roxanne Wood, and it fits the little man perfectly! Very pleased with the result for my first baby garment, and so quick to knit!
