Entry 29: Hitting Two KAL's with one Knit

For Project Spectrum... a photo in black and white...concerning a white hat, on a dark-haired chica.

For the Amazing Lace... a technicolor photo of the actual hat...side profile. The lace holes I knit seem to be smaller than the hat photo from Knitty, but ah well.

Techie info:
Pattern: Zigzag Hat by Vernoik Avery from Knitty
Yarn: Two balls of Lana Gatto Feeling (Merino wool, silk cashmere)
Needles: #6 Addi Turbo's
Time: July-Aug '06

Not only does cashmere blend yarn feel niiice to work with. It feels comfy on the head. Too bad we're in the middle of summer!

I also sent my bag to my Tote Exchange Pal and she just received it last Thursday. She told me she loved it! Yay! Another satisfied secret pal! I guess I shouldn't have worried so much.

Emboldened by that success, I've decided to join another Two more!

International Scarf Exchange 3

Second Sock Syndrome Swap

I also want to knit something for Afghans for Afghans.

I was pretty good for awhile. I had no (U)n(F)inished (O)bjects. I kept my projects to one or two at a time... Now it seems like I've accumulated projects again!

1)For ISE 3: Maybe Midwest Moonlight or Spiral Scarf from Knitting Nature. Depends on who my scarf exchange recipient is. I was strongly considering some of my Blue Heron Yarn or perhaps Artyarns Supermerino for the Spirals.

2)For Second Sock Syndrome: My first pair of socks! Well, one sock anyway. I'm going to knit a Jaywalker Sock and send it to my future recipient. I have some Regia ready just for the occasion.

3)Spartan Pullover for Afghans for Afghans. Due date is by late Sept. Hopefully I can finish this sweater in time. I have Cascade 220 set aside for just this project.

4)Zigzag sweater - Still thinking about this sweater! I think now that I am comfortable with the stitch pattern, I can knit the sweater with confidence. I think I'm going to knit with some Karabella Majestic and see how that turns out.

I've been obsessing on and off for the last year or so about the Zigzag sweater...
