Super Kool


I'm knitting the Koolhaas Hat from Interweave Knits Holiday 2007 issue for the girl who shared a room with Jen at hospital ... it is a very cool pattern, if slow! I'm using the Estonian Cable technique to do the little 2 stitch cables that abound, which means I don't have to use a cable needle. The technique is described in IK's Favourite Socks (Meida's Sock pattern by Nancy Bush). Very cool!

Holidays is nice. Now to finish Mariah!

ETA : Yarn is cheapy Panda Carnival 100% wool - fairly soft, and not machine washable. It's not to bad, really, and only $3.60 per ball!

  7. That is such a great color! I think I'll have to try the hat. I am not a hat person but I do need one for next winter. It'll take me that long to make all those cables!
