WIP Wednesday – Autumn Gold Lace Hat

Apologies for my lack of blog posts recently.  I really cannot think where all my time is going, given that I am no longer in the routine of a full time job.  I seem to be spending a lot of time designing and feel a bit out of the loop in blogland.  I haven’t even read any blogs in the last week or so!

As some of you will have read a few weeks ago, I went out to Fyberspates to pick up an old loom, and came home with a lovely soft skein of yarn to play with too :)

The yarn is ‘Rural Charm’ 4 ply sock yarn, 70% Bluefaced Leicester, 20% Silk and 10% Cashmere. Yes, it is gorgeous! I love how tidy the stitches come out, and it blocks wonderfully.

It took me a while to decide what to make with this lovely yarn – I have not yet ventured into the world of socks (I know it will happen someday) but it seems I am still stuck on hats, you can never have enough! Plus I love the fact that they don’t use up too much yarn, and can be finished pretty quickly.

This one is taking a little longer as I am knitting on 3mm needles, but I’m really looking forward to it being finished. The pattern is a really fun knit!

    Excellent choice to add to your stash … well, actually, you haven’t added it to your stash because there it is on your needles! I think it’s lovely to knit golden hues in the summer months.

    Sometimes you just need a little break from certain things, I have the same kind of lag when the semester ends. I love, love, love the yarn you are using for the hat. Someday you will end up in the wonderful world of socks!

  3. Yum, that’s gorgeous yarn. And cashmere content too? Double yum!

    I must get my hands on more Fyberspates :)
