My daughter was looking for a slouchy hat and we came upon some patterns I wanted to try. I selected Autumn by Jane Richmond. It is a super-quick knit, made of Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick. Talk about fast – one day! I added a few extra inches for a bit more slouch. It has a sophisticated look that I think a younger person can pull off. I thought it had potential for me, but I’m not sure….
Working with such thick yarn must be my antidote for the upcoming Lace Knit – A – Long sponsored by Kate. I’m excited about it, but still unsure what I’m going to knit. I’ve ventured into lace only a few times. I guess my Cece qualifies as lace.
And my feather and fan stole.
One of the ideas I am thinking about is the Katharine Hepburn Cardigan. I have some cotton yarn that is the right weight. I think I’d make the short one for one of my girls.
