The hat has grown a little in the past few days. Since two layers are being worked at the same time, progress feels slow. Finishing the lattice pattern on the outside of the hat feels like a mini milestone though, since the rest of the the outside is plain grey. It means the chart pattern now becomes much simpler, and I should be able to remember it by heart. Yay for not being shackled to a chart any more! The stitches look a little messy at the moment, but I’m hoping that after blocking and some gentle pulling into place of stitches, it’ll look much neater.
Remember the mystery socks? Well, they’ve kind of stalled slightly. I started the gusset decreases at the weekend, but after realising how quickly Christmas is rushing up I decided I’d better concentrate on knitting some Christmas gifts instead of finishing socks for me! I still have a couple of pairs of socks to knit, some French Press felted slippers, and a couple of scarves/shawls, none of which have actually been started yet! Eek. Is anyone else as disorganised as me for Christmas!?
