Two Projects

I still have to show you a couple of sewn projects from before I left Bulgaria but today I wanted to show what I have been doing here in London. I mean I haven't done much at all as I've been laying on the couch and eating bonbons I am lazy these days. But I did manage to make two little things.

The first one was a hat for Matt. He did not bring any hats with him and so I picked up some Debbie Bliss tweed yarn for him and started the hat.

Turn a Square

The pattern is free from knitting web site Ravelry. It's called Turn a Square and it supposed to have stripes all over the hat. I changed that. I just did three stripes all different thickness. I like how it turned out. This is actually a second version of the hat. The first one turned out too big so I had to undo everything and re-knit it again.

Second time around I knitted it without any increases after the ribbing and, also, used smaller needles. Now it fits him perfectly. And I love the tweedy look of the hat.

So then I signed up to do another test knit on Ravelry. I promised A I'd make her something and she's been waiting. So I tested her size so she can keep the finished project and wear it. It is a bolero/shrug thingie that's called Wisteria.

It was a very fast knit. I made size 5T. It turned out very cute BUT I wish it had some kind of ties or a button in front as it keeps falling off her shoulders. Other than that, I like it and she loves it. Always wants to wear it.

Of course there is a picture of A's super posing. She's into posing lately.
