Notes

The Crayon Vomit hat I made for him is gone somehow. Time for a new cat. He chose the yarn and asked for cables! I might make him 2……

I love knitting with Ultra Alpaca. So nice….

I got through the ribbing & 1 1/2 pattern repeats & had Ian try it on: too tight! So I frogged it back to ribbing (and a little beyond; I was distracted). When I started the main pattern charts again, I went up 3 needle sizes.

Used 7/8 of one skein only - perhaps I will make him another hat of different design……

He tried it on this evening and said it was “Perfect! Cool!”

I am happy. Pictures soon.
