New projects

I was just reading the Yarn Harlot’s post from yesterday . . . about casting on a bunch of new projects.  It’s just that time of year!!  I have cast on two new projects:  the Effortless Cardigan by Hannah Fetig (knitbot).  I haven’t gotten very far with it yet, but the yarn (Madelinetosh DK in Ms. Taylor) is so beautiful to look at and touch.  I hope to have something wonderful to wrap myself in soon.

I also cast on a ski hat for my husband.  His annual “guys ski trip” is in a few weeks.  Not sure if they will have snow, but he’ll have a nice warm hat.  I went into the stash and found brown cascade soft spun.  It is so soft!!!  He found a pattern he wants me to make.  It’s from the Sweater Babe site and is very cool:

From Sweater Babe.com

The pattern cost $4 but I could download it – that is just the best!  The cables are a bit tricky.  I was watching youtube videos in bed last night – there is a bit of a twist involved.  I think I’ve figured it out.  Time will tell I guess.  He’s pretty psyched.  People are going to want to know where he got this cool hat.  Planning to work on it tonight and will post pics tomorrow.

Tomorrow I have a “Magic Loop” toe-up sock class at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop.  Really looking forward to this.  I have some sock yarn, but am not sure if I have a long enough circular needle.  Oh well, may need to do some shopping before class!
