Knitting Updates

I had to create a whole new shelf in the closet just for winter hats. They really are a quick and satisfying project. Recently I’ve completed 2 cuties. Both with the on-trend fur pom-pom addition (see The Needle Emporium to order).

First up is a free pattern from Ravelry called Pennyroyal (see pattern here) done in a worsted weight tweed…

The next was another quick aran knit. I had some left over Arranmore from the sweater in the above pic. It’s merino wool with cashmere and silk so super soft and lovely! I used a Maria Socha pattern called Magnolia

Yes, I splurged on the Arranmore but it is soooooooooo scrumptious! It was originally bought for the popular Veronkika Cardi by Very Shannon. Love it! Warm and cozy! I did the smallest size. Blocking is a MUST to get the size right. I wet blocked it and stretched it a bit longer because I wanted more tush coverage. Annoying to wear under a coat so bring it in the car with you if you live in cold Canada…
