Hats 162 to 165: Textured

Stroke screen for full texture appreciation

Voila, I am all up to date with the hats! I thought this day would never come! Two of them, the hats with purple in, are a fascinating combination of textures – the purple is rough, and the pink is smooth, slippery cotton. They’re great to feel with your eyes closed.

This is what I will be reading tonight, relevant, hey? Soon I’m going to be starting a Ravelry bookring, and this book will be registered on BookCrossing to make it easier to track.

Today I did epic planting and gardening, and now I’m watching Glee and working on my sock yarn blanket. I just watched the pilot of Glee, so for people who remember the closing song, here is a Spotify link for you.

Hat 16: Nothing to report

This hat is really boring, and I have no excuse. Mostly I was trying out the yarn, which I’ve never used before. It was one of several balls of scrap yarn that were sent to me on the Random Acts of Kindness forum on Ravelry, and the sender very kindly included labels for all of the yarns! This one is labeled Bergere de France Berlande, which, miraculously, is on Ravelry.

I have to say, it is yummy to work with. Sewing-wise, it got a bit strangly. But to knit with, it’s got a fascinating texture that I enjoy and I can imagine that something a bit bigger than an Innocent hat might feel great in scarf or similar. Shame it’s discontinued, eh?

Ooohh, and a shameless plug. 🙂 I have a new sock pattern for sale, it’s called Spiralicious. Here it is on Rav, and here it is on Coriandr. Thank you for paying attention for this shameless plug. /shameless plug
