Socks. Plain blue socks knit toe up on size one US needles. No real pattern – just a turkish cast on toe and short row heel. This is YarnArt Wool, a nice basic sock wool which I like because it is inexpensive and comes in solid colors. Am I the only person in the world who likes solid color yarns? It feels like it sometimes.
This is the mostly – it still needs blocking, and packing, and shipping. Charlene Schurch’s Norwegian Star Cap, from her book ‘Hats On’ , knit in Nature Spun worsted wool. Size six and four US needles.
You’re not the only one. I like solids, too – but I always have adored variegated. Now that I can buy handpaints, I’m in heaven. Sometimes, too, they’re useful: I’m learning the sock-on-2 circs method, and it’s helpful that every stitch is a different color. I can keep track of where I am by following the color changes.
The hat is beautiful!
I like them both. Well done!
Can never go wrong with a nice solid colour. Good job!
