Alright, first things first! You want to know who won right? I’ll tell you. Thanks to the help of a very handy random number generator, we have 2 winners!
Congrats to Seed Stitch Cheryl, and Fletch Knits Elizabeth! Ladies, I’ve just sent you emails, I’ll be needing your addresses, and some very nice fibery goodness will be finding it’s way to you asap!
Thanks everybody for playing, I’ll have to have more of these fun little contests in the future!
To those of you who guessed my Chevron project was a hat, your right on the money.
It didn’t take long at all, and as I suspected, I almost didn’t make a dent in my handspun stash, just because I used so many colors. Not to worry though, I’ve started another, using just four colors, this time in some leftover felted tweed. As soon as I can write out the crown decreases so that they make sense to everyone, and not just me, I’ll definitely be posting it. My gauge is about 6 St/inch, an the pattern is a multiple of 6 stitches, so it will be very easy to adjust gauge for yarn and head circumferance. I knit it up with a turned facing (easy stuff!), but it could just as easily be worked with ribbing instead.
I’m excited to share this, and see what you all come up with! Thanks to Brandt for modeling, my self portrait attempts were pretty funny!
