I only started this last Friday. And yesterday, all of a sudden, it was finished!
That’s Brioche for
I’ve had a bad night but I want to show you my hat:
Here’s the link to the project page.
I used the shetland type yarn of RareWool.com, the yarn spinning factory in Estland that formerly made Evilla yarns.
The yarn is a bit rough when you knit with it but once you wash it and get rid of the spinning oil it blooms and grows softer.
I chose the same colours I previously had in the handspun, worsted yarns. They are so spring like.
I can’t believe it.
Now what do I knit?
It has to be Brioche because my shoulder really doesn’t like anything else. All other projects, including Shapeshifter, are on hold.
I’ve looked at the knitted things I think I need this year. A warm wimple would be nice. Something snuggly to hide my head in. I’ll be stash diving later today because not having a project to work on feels weird.
Here’s the hat in progress.
I started with the ribbing but that made my shoulder ache so much that I went into Brioche much sooner than the pattern stated.
I hope this picture also shows how harsh the yarn is too work with. It doesn’t hurt the hands, not that harsh, but not something that’s particularly friendly.
So different after a good wash!
Spring is starting around here.
Such pretty leaves:
