Once again, I am blaming the Happy Monday System for throwing off my schedule. However, I am pleased to be sharing with you something other than the blanket.
I promised a friend a hat for her birthday back in July and after going through my vast collection, she decided on this one (Rav link), in green. I had to wait until fall to buy the yarn, since the general store doesn’t stock it in summer and I don’t have any green yarn. Call it a character flaw.
This is the fourth Gretel that I’ve knitted. It’s a very quick pattern (this hat was completed over four days of train rides), and the finished product is popular with non-knitters. I never seem to wear the two I’ve made for myself, however, most likely due to poor yarn choices.
Next week – the blanket returns! Hopefully it will look noticeably bigger to your eyes, after a two week break.
