Abra Cadabra

the hat is done!

Pattern starts at the top and swirls downward. I chose
black for Color A, and Red for Color B. I thought Color
A would be dominant - I really wanted the black dominant,
but I like how it turned out.

The pattern calls for switching the dominant color for the
bottom inch, that's why the black stands out more there.
Hat is not blocked yet, bet it will look even better then.

Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash
Pattern: Swirl Striped Hat, purchased on Ravelry.

This was fun! I have some more yarn to make a red/blue one.
Stay tuned!

I've been working a little bit on some socks from the yarn
Martha gave me for Christmas - such pretty yarn from
Kangaroo Dyer.

These brown/gray/black socks are the brainless project I have going.
Pattern is k3, p1. The yarn is Berocco Sox, which is not
that wonderful. Too much nylon. They will be for
Joe for Christmas.

Ruth has been working on a pair of Cookie A socks, in
Malabrigo sock yarn. She also has a picture of some
socks that she darned......

No pictures from Martha in a while, but she continues
to knit!

I worked a lot of hours this week so not much going on.
Awaiting spring! in spite of the snowstorm again today.

Happy knitting dear blog readers!
