I completed the pattern: Ragg Cape and Hat by Bernat Design Studio. [check out the link for the free pattern from Bernat]
I'll show you how it fits tomorrow night after getting some pictures while I'm at Community Knitting. Here's the detailed specks for right now.
For acrylic yarn it wasn't too bad to knit with at all. [So now I know I'm not a yarn snob!! - Truth be known: I love most yarns. Just ask my Stash.] The pattern was fun to do. I might knit it again using another yarn if I love wearing this one. There's a new stock of yarn at Seed Stitch Fine Yarn from Kertzer called Accents. Although I need a chunky. I think it would be nice in this pattern for those lightly cooler Fall nights if I double it up to get a chunky weight. It contains 75% acrylic & 25% wool ... a denim color would be nice. Or a dark blue. Have to check out the colors & how much I'd need. Not that I don't have enough to do already ...
And look at what came in the mail from a sweet knitter friend on Ravelry for my granddaughter, Jayden.
I'm going to put those buttons on a felted hat called Pixie-Doodle by Lisa Cruse ... and of course there'll be a few Cat In the Hat books included for her. She loves to be read too. Christmas planning ... which will be started soon.
Did I tell you this was from a knitter? A knitting angel of course. Well she also included a box of goodies for me. Me.
Gosh, I love my stitching friends!!
Now it's back to work on my projects in progress ...
Start-a-tyt-ist is a disease right?
