This seems to be a lame week, Barbara Walkerwise, but you must trust me that I have actually been knitting up a storm. It’s just this is all that I have finished…two things from my wheelhouse…hats. I have decided that this challenge is actually making my hat creations much more boring and hopefully I can come up with something better down the road. Anyway, here goes.
This is actually a hat that I made a couple of years ago in blue. Heather wore it and wore it. She took it to Peru on her Scouting volunteer trip. It was covered in plaster dust. Alan accidentally washed it with a load of laundry…you can guess the results. I remade it this week in off white because it actually fit the challenge criteria. Knit-2 Purl-2 ribbing from Chapter 3, Ribbings and Wave of Honey Stitch from Chapter 12, Cable-Stitch Patterns.
I went to an all day testing session for a job last week. I had looked up the stitch and taken a photo of the page of the book on my phone so I could make the hat on the bus and in the downtimes. Unfortunately, I left the phone happily charging away at home, so I had to recreate the stitch from memory. This is why I have zigged instead of zagged and I have actually started the hat half way through the stitch instructions, but since I was at the decreases by the time I got home, I said stuff it, I am not starting again.
