New Projects

Two new projects underway: a Holey Moley poncho for my friend Annalie and a felted hat for Kelly.

I just finished the test swatch for the hat. It’s 8 ½” wide and 7″ high. I’m going to go grab a zippered pillow case to throw it in for the felting and then see how much shrinkage I get. I’m using my perennial favorite, Lamb’s Pride Worsted for the hat. I have two skeins of nice deep plum and one skein that’s more of a purply-wine color for the band.

For the Holey Moley poncho, I have just received six skeins of Classic Elite Attitude. 85% pima cotton, 15% silk. It’s lime green and soft as a bug’s nose. I’m going to cast on with it while I’m shopping for the pillow case. It’s definitely knit time in my corner of the universe.

    You might try one of those “Woolite” mesh bags. I just used one to felt some slippers and it was mighty handy. And you can use it for your, uh, delicates too. :)
