Dee: Did anyone get out for World Wide Knit in Public Day? I did, and here I am knitting by one of my favorite places in Naperville, the Dandelion Fountain. I had brought along my traveling project to commemorate the occasion, it’s a second Colorful Day Cowl in some of Sophie’s Toes yarn in one of her newly packaged gradient yarn sets. I haven’t finished the cowl yet however I am on the final color.
I know I have said this before…and I am going to say it again and again…I am completely smitten with Knitcircus’ Lap of Luxury yarn. I love the combination of merino wool and silk and isn’t this hat just the best project to highlight the yarn?!
It’s the Poplar Leaf Beret from the new Noro Lace book. Wait…here are more views.
So pretty, right? This completes my June entry for my hat of the 2015 month challenge. I loved knitting this pattern and I will be knitting a second item from the Noro Lace book in the near future, the Veil Stitch Cowl. There were plenty of great designs between this book’s covers as is usually the case with many Noro books. Their yarn just makes you want to knit everything. Although…I didn’t use a Noro yarn for this hat so I guess it’s not written in stone that you should. I will be knitting the Veil Stitch Cowl in Noro’s Taiyo sock yarn.
Next up on the needles is a Meg Swansen design, in fact, I cast on this very afternoon. I am knitting her Jumper-Weight Tam in two colors only using the Blackberry Ridge fingering weight yarn I bought at knitting camp. I figured that this would be a great entry for July since everything about it is basically American…the designer and the yarn were both made right here in the good old USA. Knit on!
