Another baby hat-this one out of sport weight yarn on the new knitting machine,
it has a x 1 rib at the brim,
The yarn split something awful but other than that,
the lessons I have been learning were successful!
Notes are essential because while you are doing the actual knitting,
you cannot measure the fabric on the machine;
the weights stretch everything beyond reality so you have to rely on your
For example, I doubted my numbers and stopped 8 rows short of what I had planned
and when I seamed the hat up-
sure enough, it is one inch too short!
I am happy with what I learned today.
Each night I try to add to the Mystical Lanterns pile.
Sometimes I only manage one, other nights I can manage 2-3.
They add up either way.
And remember the lavender/blue and yellow silk from a few months ago?
That is carried around in my purse for out-and-about knitting
because you just never know when you need to pull out some patience!
