I can’t believe that I finished the Hurricane Hat in 4 days!!! For me, this is a HUGE achievement given that knitting minutes in my day are few and far between.
On each round, the placement of purls effectively creates a whirlwind swirly pattern. This simple combination of putting knits and purls together to create something so lovely is what makes me want to keep going back to knitting.
The bits of blue on the forest green of this yarn reminded me so much of this…
…we were driving up to Alouette Lake at the Golden Ears Provincial Park a couple years ago. I remember how surreal and beautiful the mountains looked with fog snaking it’s way around them.
I finished the hat using 2 circs because I didn’t have a long enough cable to magic loop the top. I figured that this is the reason Cat Bordhi proclaims that Socks Soar on Two Circulars – and it’s true!!! The top of this hat got done in no time at all and there was no awkward poke-you-in-the-eye drama with DPNs. Now, that the hat’s all done, I think that I will just use 2 circs to get my socks finished. In the meantime there’s a lovely cake of Malabrigo Chunky tempting me.
This yarn is evil! Delicious, but evil!!!
