Ok.. that’s a terrible pun, but I couldn’t help myself. I just finished the Ziggy hat from Woolly Wormhead. Talk about fun and interesting! This is a very neat knit. It’s knit sideways with a provisional cast on and then kitchenered together seamlessly. It took me 2 days to knit and then I kitchenered this morning. (I tried to do it last night, but after 3 failed attempts, I decided to put it down. After some sleep and coffee, it went off without a hitch.) I’m not sure that it looks that good on me, but it looks excellent on one of my yarn buddies, Pat. She may be getting a new hat this year (and it’s even in her colors!).
I’m also nearly complete with the Butterfly Top. I have one more strap to go (and it’s nearly done!) and then I can assemble. I do still need to find buttons for it, but I’m looking forward to that task. I hate the Pima Tencel. It sheds terribly. It’s definitely not a yarn I’d use again. The Jasmine (the pink with the sparkle on the top band and strap) is nice to work with though.
I also finished the ruched bag in hand dyed and Patons Classic. I need to find handles for it and line it, but otherwise, it’s complete. The colors in the top picture are the truest, but I wanted to show the entire bag, despite the terrible color brightness from the flash.
Lastly, I’m working on the Yogini Bolero. I’m using Madil Denim purchased at a MYSS Sidewalk Sale a couple years ago. So far, I’m liking it. I’m hoping to get it done fairly quickly so I can wear it as a summer layering piece in the office.
I’m not sure if I’m having a major bout of Star-itis or Finish-itis, but either way, I’m doing a lot of knitting!
