A fishing expedition into the darkest recesses of the paper pattern collection was conducted for the long-forgotten Curlique Coverlet (Raverly) a couple of weeks ago. A bit of experimentation determined the plan in mind was not going to work, and supplementing with 1 or 2 more colours was necessary. The first of the 15 units was knitted and weighed to gauge yarn consumption – 36 grams of yarn required. With the new colours now in hand, working on it with intent is the plan. It’s amazing how the addition of the new rows turns the first section from being mostly a triangle into a swirly something.
Things to like: The amusement factor in the knitting and eventual wearing of the hat. The texture of the little beast is like one of those toys you get at a convention as a stress reliever – I have no idea what they are called.
Not so much: Not a thing. Hopefully the poor child wearing this hat will not be overly embarrassed.

A pair of socks for co-worker’s 8 year old nephew were made over the weekend. The young man’s feet get cold when he’s playing outside, and his mother has to rub them between her hands to warm them up. He’s unable to walk, so it’s no wonder his feet freeze when out having some winter fun. Hopefully these will help keep his feet warm.
