Bad news first. Emme just ran off with my mouse again. Wait, that's not news at all. No the bad news is that I don't have a working project. Boooooo! I gotta fix that ASAP.
The good news is I finished the newborn hat for the Afghans for Afghans Mother's Day drive.
I used the Elann Peruvian Highland Chunky Yarn in Mid Indigo and #10.5 bamboo kneedles. The combination of an all natural yarn in a gorgeous blue on bamboo or wooden kneedles is such a relaxing, lovely feeling. I adjusted the Nona pattern you used for your little hat because of the thicker yarn. I cast on 40 stitches and then followed the instructions from there -- mostly. In order to make sure it fit over the ears, I followed your advice and made the ribbed part longer and then got carried away and made the non-ribbed part longer too. I think it came out good, but not great.
Switching to the continental method midproject wasn't a tidy idea, but it did illustrate the difference in my version of the two knitting styles. My continental stitches are looser, which I like, but they are also more uneven, which I don't like. So I'm going back to the slower, but consistent, English method.
My project for this morning is to start another project. I feel so... incomplete... without one.
