In an effort (ongoing I should say) to clean out my yarn stash I am participating in Single Skein September 2010. Loosely organized by Stash n' Burn podcast listeners on the groups' Ravelry board, the challenge is to knit up your single skeins during the month of September. There is no way I will get through all my single skeins, so I am concentrating on skeins that are more than four years old. Coincidentally, my LYS has a charity knitting challenge for six weeks from September through October, so most of my single skein projects will be hats headed for donation.
My first hat is done!
|Raining Down Hat|
Needles: US 6 & 7 done magic loop.
Size: medium - youth
Yarn: Sunny Mountain chinese lopi-esque yarn in red/pink from deep in my stash, and leftover bits of Stonehedge Fiber Mill's Shepherd's Wool in granite.
Mods: none. Although, there is no suggested gauge for this pattern, so I may have been way off. Next time I will do a large, as the medium really is a youth size in this yarn.
Gosh, that red/pink really doesn't photograph well, does it? Yikes! It looks more eye-searing in the photograph than it does in person.
If you have come over from my old blog please leave a comment to say hi. And if you are new, please say hi too! I am hoping that with this new blog I may actually be able to respond to comments, something that was nearly impossible for me to do at Blog-city.
