I even chose a very neutral (easy to see) color. I was letting my eyes take a rest after all that dark wool...
When I felt a little better, I knit another Snappy Hat to put me in a good mood.
Then... It was time to start anew, it was time to knit not one, but two Peerie Flooers!
Yes, I did change the colors, I wanted them to match my coats! :-)
The first one is made of crochet cotton in springtime colors. Since cotton has no elasticity to speak of, knitting it is a bit hard on the hands, so I'm also knitting one for next winter in Briggs & Little "Sport" and "Durasport", because it's a lot more fun and easier to work with! Notice that there is a hint of green in the pattern, so it will be worn with the green cape! Yeah!!!
I love that wool! It comes in a lot of great colors, it's very inexpensive, it's really warm, it's indestructible and it comes from an old mill in New Brunswick! Granted it's pretty scratchy to begin with, but it softens up and blooms beautifully when you add a few drops of softener (or hair conditioner) in the soaking bath.
I also have a "Dollheid" in the works... Stay tuned!
I'm off to do the crown decreases!!!
