I used the Hurricane Hat pattern and Spud and Chloe sweater. I enjoyed knitting with it. Its a cotton/wool super wash blend. Now that its finished its starting to shed. I'm not sure how I feel about that. Perhaps I'll check out these super wash qualities and see if it holds up to $14.00 a skein. I love the drape of the finished fabric. Its very sweater like. Its great yarn, but... we'll see.
For the Technical challenge, Schrodinger's paw:
This one I've done before. It will be a set, now that I have two. I want to use this pattern to make a double knit potholder too. I haven't exactly figured out the logistics of that yet. I think if I do the pattern on just one side and follow the established stitches on the other side it should work.
As promised Liberty Wool:
Very pink! With some purple and I think green. I cant wait to try this. I probably wont be saying that once I start but, oh well. Learning new techniques is supposed to be challenging and hopefully rewarding enough to do it again. At least the yarn is awesome. I can always re-purpose it.
