I was not in a sock mood last week, which is very weird for me. I think I knit about an inch of my current sock over the entire week, so there’s no point in sharing that. Last week was about bulky yarns, the bulkier the better, and for me, the best bulky yarn is Malabrigo Rasta. I pulled out a skein of gray Rasta the other day and within a couple of hours, I had a finished hat. I love that.
The pattern is Nour and I love it except I made it a touch too long, so it slides down more than I’d like. If I were really
crazy ambitious, I could frog back to the last pattern repeat and re-knit it smaller, but I don’t think that sounds like fun. If I end up really disliking it, I’ll give this one to someone else and make a new one for me! The pompom is one of the fantastic snap-on versions, so I can switch it out with other colors.
Today I go back to work, which means Duncan will be confined in the kitchen, wearing a cone, with a couple of Trazodone to keep him calm and sleepy while I’m gone. Here’s hoping all goes well!
I hope Duncan does well while you’re back at work!
I love Malabrigo Rasta! The hat looks great. Is this one where you could fold up the brim since it’s a little too long?
I wondered that too– it’s not designed that way, but I’ll definitely try it!
The pink pom-poms is a super contrast with the grey 😊
I love Rasta. That is a great hat.
