I cast on the Snowball Hat from the Fall 2007 IK on Sunday night. I'm using Malabrigo Worsted (Mmmmmm, Malabrigo.....) and um... the same needle size as on the pattern. This is my first time working a pattern with the yarn doubled, and I'm assuming that the two strands of yarn twisting together is normal? Not that I've bothered to untwist it. Just keep knitting, just keep knitting, that's my motto.
I'll be returning to the real deal in a few days. I've actually got some plain stockinette socks on the needles now (using Regia Kaffe Fassett) that are meant for the gift pile. When those are done, I'll have precisely 2 gifts knit up. Did I mention I have 16 people on my list? Oh boy, here we go again.
