I’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. My progress so far – about 8″
Icelandic Lodband, 50 g, ca. 225 m
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.
Pattern for the brown short sleeve sweater. The red is very attractive but try to picture it in brown.
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.
