Knitting Content!

Finally: some knitting. Remember I told you I was working on a new hat, and that I wasn't sure I liked it? Well, I frogged that back to the ribbing and came up with this instead. I'm actually not sure I like this either, because in typical me fashion I didn't bother to swatch so it's a little on the large side.

The stitch pattern is called Little Curls, and the yarn is Rowan Cocoon, a merino/kid mohair single in the Tarn colorway. Even though I really enjoyed the yarn, I haven't blocked this hat or even woven the ends in yet, so it may still end up as something else! I may try knitting it at a smaller gauge next time and if that looks better I'll post a quick how-to.

In other news, Fiona is now a high school graduate, even though Mary's wearing the mortarboard. Yay!

I like that hat. It's really nice reading all the things you are up to with your girls. Although I admit to being a little dismayed that parenting at that stage of childhood doesnt appear to be any less busy!! Lol. Looks like such a busy but rewarding time for you

Congrats to Fiona! I think all of your girls are beautiful.

Thanks sweetp - yep, on the one hand, they learn how to drive, but on the other, they learn how to add things to their own schedules without consulting you! It's still fun! Lydia

Thanks bea & wool winder - the hat's growing on me. I may try one in a worsted before I throw the pattern notes out. Lydia
