Knitting as dummies...



How pretty does this look? You'd never this is a resounding mistake. With Widdershins safely off the needles and wrapped up for Christmas I needed a quick fix. No more tiny needles for me. After an expensive trip to Get Knitted on Saturday I picked up a skein of Lamb's Pride Bulky in Lemon Drop.

I recall reading someone else's blog over the past few weeks how difficult they found it to get yellow wool. This is my excuse for not producing a decent yellow hat for my brother's girlfriend as requested about 9 months ago. But I had always been seduced by the sheer fluffiness of Lamb's Pride and decided to indulge myself this weekend.

I was delighted at how quickly it knitted up into a thick, chunky cabled hat. So delighted in fact that I didn't pay too muct attention to the shape and size of the hat. And ended up with this.




An unattractive cabled flying saucer. Last spotted:On Dumb Donald in his Cosby kid days. Frog and begin again, that's what I say...

Haha! Oh well. The colour is fantatic. I always forget about yellow, if that makes sense. It's very under-rated.

i found it really hard to get yellow wool for that scarf I did for knitty. Ended up using 100% acrylic jobbie I got from local dept store. Which mixed with the wool was fine and a grea yellow
