I'm not dead yet
This past weekend I finished up that baby hat I had been working on.
Yarn: Cascade Yarns Cloud 9
Fiber: 50% merino 50% angora
Needles: US size 7/4.5 mm DPNs
Pattern: my own basic ribbed hat with a 64 st cast-on
Oh the wonder that is ribbing. Pre-washed it was small enough for an infant (though a little on the big side) but large enough when stretched for a child. Post-bloom (and Lucy you are right, the bloom of this stuff is amazing!) we definitely grew a bit.
Ha, serves me right for not swatching I guess. I am now thinking it is more like a 6-9 month size on the low end, and I can now wear it, though it is snug, fully stretched. In my defense I do have a small head. Oh well! Better a little big than a little small.
Hook: H hook for both
Modifications: hdc instead of sc on both
I also worked a bunch on my Hogwarts Sock Swap socks. Feeling guilty for what a simple pattern I chose, though I do like the simple look, I opted to be generous in the leg ribbing. At first I was feeling a bit numbed by all the 2X2 ribbing, but then I reached that happy place that I didn't notice it passing while I would do other things. (I have the same thing happen when I read, when I am really into a book I have no recollection of turning any pages.) A few more rows and I will be done with the leg and then I can go back to the heel to finish these babies off.
