The color-work cap – ready to start decreasing.

The next row on the cap will be the first decrease row! Look at how little white yarn I have left. I have another skein of the white yarn, but will be irked to no end if I have to wind another ball to finish off the last few rows of this hat. Which of course means that I will get within 50 stitches of the end, and run out white yarn.


I’m going to run a little contest on this one — guess how close to the end of the hat I will be before I run out of yarn, and the closest guess wins! Wins what, I dunno yet. A personalized spice blend (I make a mean curry powder)? Some embroidery goodies? A little tin of fancy jasmine tea? Made to order stitch markers ( we just got a dedicated sculpey oven!)?


Winner to be announced sometime on Saturday, or whenever I finish the hat – which ever comes second!

  1. This is so lovely! I love the color combo & the pattern. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am praying for you that you don’t run out, but I know you will have like 2 rounds left and won’t be able to stretch it any further.

  2. absolutely beautiful. You don’t actually have to wind the new skein…you could just pull off a couple yards and tie it back together ๐Ÿ˜‰
