WIP Me Wednesday
Tami, the Oh So Clever person behind FO Fridays also hosts WIP Wednesday. Isn't that kind of her? To provide one forum for a blog post is wonderful but two? Nobel Peace Prize I'm looking at you. So here is my W.I.P for this week. It will come as no surprise to anyone, I'm sure, that's it's a HAT.
Isn't that an artistic photo? No? Anyhoo, this is a very special hat. Because I have finally found an alternative to wool that I actually like to knit with. I am pleased as punch. The yarn is Knit One Crochet Too's "Babyboo". It's a DK weight that knits more like a worsted and it's 55% nylon and 45% bamboo, 115 yards. Plus it was only $5.75 a ball. The jury is still out on whether or not I'll be able to get an adult's hat out of one skein but I'm hoping. The bamboo gives it a bit of a sheen and it has fantastic stitch definition. This one is a KEEPER.
The pattern itself is the Plain Roll Brimmed Hat Doesn't that eloquent name just make you want to grab your needles and get to work? Did I mention how soft this yarn is? Like baby bum soft. Like little rattie tummy soft. Like apparently I have lost my mind. And now that you're seen my fascinating Work-In-Progress why don't you jump over to Tami's blog and check out the rest?
