I'm not doing very well with my resolution to be finishing more projects than I'm starting, but as I've started and finished this one, does it cancel itself out?
I was feeling down at the weekend and needed a quick and brainless knit. This is the Easy-Fit Ribbed Hat. I had a skein of Artesano 50% alpaca / wool aran weight- 100g just about made the hat
It wasn't as quick to knit as I had hoped, using big needles like these (6.5mm) is quite clumsy. But by the end I was getting quite deft with the 'right needle anchored under the arm' technique, which worked really well with these big needles.
For speed with 2x2 rib, I knit all the k stitches through the back loop, which gives them that odd twist, but I quite like it.
