A FO and a couple of books


This week I decided to make An Unoriginal Hat, a pattern by the Yarn Harlot. Quick knit! I decided to do this for the transitional KAL in The Bunker group on Ravelry. I was going to make it for DH but ended up keeping it for myself. Naturally I have *one* mistake in it. It's my first cabling pattern. I enjoyed it for the most part and can definitaly see myself making another one. However, it is a bit snug. I made it on U.S. 10.5 DPNs and used Debbie Bliss cashmerino chunky. Oh it is so soft! I know she said that to make it bigger use bigger needles. Would that work?



I got "Dewey" the library cat book from the library this week. I haven't had a chance to really get into it. I've read the first chapter. I can't wait to finish it though.

I have also started listening to "Twilight." I'm on chapter 9; end of disc four on the audio books. I'm waiting for something *big* to happen in this book. So far the main guy has rescued the girl twice and confessed to an ability. *sigh* The book is very descriptive though. And the main guy is sooooo beautiful, lol. My boss is already tired of hearing me mumble about this book and I just started listening to it yesterday.

I'm still working on the Seascape stole. I'm about halfway through the last repeat.

I've been thinking of making an Unoriginal Hat also... how much yarn did it use up? I wonder if I have enough homespun...

Thanks Jess. The unoriginal hat took less than one ball of Debbie Bliss cashmerino bulky. I'm loving the hat big time and it was SO fast.
