I’ve been busy knitting this week! In the last three days, I was really knitting all day, and watching shows all day. It is really nice to be relaxing and knitting, drinking hot tea in the cold weather.
|Pattern: PurlBee’s Travelling Cable Hat|
I made this hat with Malabrigo Rios. The colorway is Purple Mystery, but it looks more like a dark dark blue, with flecks of black. It is really pretty. I am knitting with Rios for the first time, and I love it. I’ll definitely be using and buying more of Rios in the future. I also bought Malabrigo Worsted, but I don’t really like it but it’s not as tightly plied. It was also why I didn’t really like Knitpicks Preciosa. However, I’ve noticed that Malabrigo Rios has less colours than Worsted.
|Pattern: Simple Boyfriend’s Hat|
This is a very quick knit, and it’s rather small. I only used about 55g of Knitpicks Swish Worsted in Cobblestone. I used 4mm knitting needles.
|Pattern: Coopknits Budleigh|
This pattern is very interesting. It has two kinds of cabling plus it is a mirror image of each other as well. I’m not too sure about how it’ll look on the feet though.
I also bought a lot of knitting needles from Loveknitting as well, using the 25% off, and an extra 2.25 mm set of knitting needles. I’ve got plenty of 2.5mm needles but only 1 set of 2.25mm.
Speaking of yarn purchase, my orders from Eat.Sleep.Knit has arrived. They’re my first purchases from the online store and I get to try out more yarn brands so I am rather excited. I’ll be doing an extra post for it.
