Two Finishes

First off – finally got a picture of me in Gretel.

Me in my Gretel

I blocked it out and I’m glad now I didn’t make the slouchy.  This is just the regular.  I’ve thought about re-wetting it and getting down to a smaller size.  Alpaca does block out well.  Please excuse the crazy picture.  I took with with my computer camera.

Fetching

Secondly I had nearly a whole ball left, so a pair of Fetching happened.  Lovely.  There is still about a 1/3 ball of this yarn left.  I think it will fester in the stash for a while.  The yarn is City Tweed by KnitPicks – the aran weight.

  • That hat turned out so cute. You are right, that is the perfect style for you. You’ve inspired me to attempt a “rhinebeck hat” so I’ve cast on for the lace leaf hat with angora blend I picked up in VT and am taking the week off from test knitting for SM.
