More hats – One for Everyone in the Audience September 24, 2009

Another hat knit with Noro and LodbandI’m still knitting hats.  Am now up to hat number 20 or thereabouts.  My sales have a way to go to catch up with my productivity.  This hat was knit with a strand of Lodband (an Icelandic lace weight I think) and a strand of Noro on a size 3 circular Addi Turbo needle.  The knitting is quite tight and consequently I think the hat would only fit a child’s head.  I suspect I should have used a larger needle.

I like the Icelandic Lodband yarn so I am now knitting a short sleeve sweater with 2 strands of brown Lodband.      Brown short sleeve sweater knit with Lodband   My progress so far – about 8″

The sweater being knit on a size 3.25 circular needle.  I cast on 192 stitches.  Progress is slow but the yarn is nice to knit with.  The knitting is quite tight.

The map shows the scene of our travels over the past couple of days.  As the passenger, I could knit while enjoying the lovely scenery.  More of that in another post.

    Looks like a nice wearable sweater – I can never imagine what one does with the superbulky sleeveless variety. This would be nice under a jacket for those of us still working. (I’m just jealous.)
