hat for husband

20140311_212642_Richtone(HDR)– newest finished object

So these posts are very few and far between and I’m hoping to change that. I started this blog because of my horrible memory. I want to be able to look back and remember what I knitted, who I knitted for and all the beautiful yarn I have.

Currently knitting a black tweed Donegal hat for my husband to replace the one I ruined. He has about 5 of these hats with the same yarn and pattern but different colors. Don’t know what is so special about this pattern but he loves it. I decided to hand wash one of them to see if it would shrink and it did quite the opposite. Β It’s about 300% larger. Lessons learned- washing alpaca just expands your knitted garment.

Will post a photo soon πŸ™‚ good night all and happy knitting!
