New beginnings

I finished the indoor cap for my grandpa. It’s too big for all of us (which is good, since he has a ginormous head!). So, you get an in-progress shot.

This isn’t even big enough to warrant an FO page, really. Tubular cast-on the correct number of stitches, rib for awhile, put in stripes if you want, knit until you’re done. I hope it keeps him just the right temperature! I really really liked working with the Wool Cotton. It’s gotten me all excited to do the Basalt Tank again. Maybe this summer!

I sucked up and finally did the math for the back of Tulip. I’m really deviating from the pattern, I hope it works out well!

I’m making it longer, I’m adding waist shaping, I’m changing it to set-in sleeves. Wish me luck on this, I’ll need it. 🙂

Risa pointed me at Ravelry, and since then I’ve seen it everywhere. I signed up for the wait list immediately, of course–hopefully it will be ready soon!

  1. Great hat, adorable model. 🙂 Oooh, you *are* making lots of changes to Tulip. They sound like really good, worthwhile changes, too. Good luck! You can totally do it!

  2. I hope you don’t have to wait too long for Ravelry. It’s really awesome. If I get any of these elusive ‘invites’ I keep hearing about, I’ll let you know.
