Hey, remember that commercial "How many licks til you get to the middle of a tootsie pop?" You know the owl that said one, two, threeee
Well, here it is. Number threeeee
Unoriginal Hat Part Deux - why Part Deux you ask...see below!
BMFA Leticia in the Lagoon Colorway (Yarn from my trip to Seattle last year)(from that store that organizes yarns by color not fiber...)
US 10.5 dpns...heh very bluey grey dpns right now!! Any cleaning hints??
It's a bit snug, but think a good baaath and it'll be poifect!
It's a bit of a thick/thin yarn, not like Manos or Magellenes, but pretty easy to knit with. Felt like I was knitting with pencil roving, although I have no idea what knitting with pencil roving is like it just looks like it...oh wait...I knit with Burly spun, do'uh it's thinner than that LOL.
Oh the Part Deux...well you guys know me, I hardly evah knit anything once!! Last year I knit this using US 11's and ran outta yarn. So I frogged it, I didn't know Burly spun then, coulda maybe used it to finish. So, I saw it sitting there in the stash and since I was going to be on Team Blue Moon, I figured what the hay, a quick project and use the stash... Besides, I really didn't want to just do a ribbed hat, this one was way more exciting...well to me ;)
The 10.5's were perfect, I even had a tiny ball leftover...so tell me friends...how the hell does .5 of a needle size make such a difference, inquiring, nosy (he gotta tell you a nose story...see below) mindless peeps wanna know!
Ok, so here we are last week, at a cook out and it's nice, cool, only light outside is the bonfire. Off I go to inside the house for a potty break. Boing, I can't walk in the door...I try again, and ouch!! Methinks I re-deviated my septum...gosh I'm a klutz! *note to self, you are not a ghost you cannot walk through a screen door!*
