So I went to Georgia this weekend for my cousins wedding and as we were leaving for the airport I just couldn’t find the other skeins of the blue sky alpaca organic cotton in pebble for my mother’s cowl! (don’t worry I found them after we got home last night in my yarn bin- where of course I didn’t look) ANYWAY-
I decided to start Foliage from Knitty Fall 2007. I have this awesome yarn that Jessie spun, so I decided that would be perfect for a laid back project for me! It is my first lace project, and I had a migraine on the flight home, so I didn’t knit at all. It’s going a little slower than I would like, but it’s really fun!!
This is the crown finished. I am now working just on the body of the hat. Unfortunately on the T this morning I did the wrong lace row, so I had to pull out the entire row during lunch and I only got one row done! It was a little depressing, but it was really hard to rip out with all of the decreases and yarn overs. Here’s a close up of the pattern:
I’m a little worried about the pattern coming out correctly, but I just keep knitting! I got a little turned around when I started the smaller chart of the body, but I am getting it more. I’m excited to see it finished! And the yarn is so nice, and it will look so great with the scarf Jessie gave me!!
