Mittens would have been our first project and Nicole has her mittens done except for the thumbs but I forgot the yarn at home for my mittens so Sunday we started our hats. The requirements for the hat were:
- A designer new to you
- Sport or DK weight yarn
- Use at least 175 yards
After a couple of changes of the minds, we decided to do Quail Run by Taiga Hillard Designs. The pattern is easy but with so much activity here, I can’t tell you how many times I messed up and had to rip back. I am happy to have this finished! Nicole, the beginning knitter, made less mistakes than I did and finished first!
We both used Skein DK yarn. The color for my hat is Thistle.
The color for Nicole’s hat is Envy.
Our next project is Father Time Cowl. We cast on 300 stitches last night and got started. It should be easier and interruptions shouldn’t cause quite so many problems.
