I wanted a softer yarn – a bit more classy looking – if you can get that in a stocking cap. LOL
So I switched to this and am pleased with it. I am still using the Scraptastic hat pattern but am calling this one Scraptastic with a Twist. Rather than just plain stockinette stitch, I’m using the twisted stitch pattern from my favorite sock pattern, Nine to Five. I don’t know that the pattern will really shop up in photos, but I love it in my socks and I think it will look good in a hat.
Don’t tell Judy, but apparently I’m Ravelry stalking her. I’m clearly not very good at it tho because I hadn’t noticed she was “ahead of me” so to speak. LOL We like similar patterns very very often. I was looking at patterns (nothing new there), something specifically to use some of the Wollmeise DK I recently bought. I came across a mystery cardigan KAL by Vera Sanon that the yarn would work for and I really like the style of her patterns and have several earmarked as must make sometime in my lifetime. I thought it sounded interesting (again nothing new I always find way too many patterns that sound interesting), and after reading more on the group list about it, decided I wanted to make it and was thinking…hmmmmm I should tell Judy about this because she does not have enough things on her knitting list (you know I’m joking!) 😉 but when I went to the home page to join the group – whose photo did I see starting back at me in the “new kids on the block,” — which are the people who just recently signed up — yep you guessed it, there she was ahead of me in line! LOL Apparently I’m about a day behind her so shhhhhhhh don’t tell her she’ll never see me trailing a whole day behind her. 🙂 But I do have my yarn picked out for it – my recent Wollmeise purchases contain more than enough Pesto green to make a sweater so that worked out perfect.
