red hat, pink hat, striped cowl
a red hat a bit too small,
yarn she chose herself for a new right-sized hat,
my big fat cotton cowl
I'm enjoying the circular needles, just need to learn a thing or two about gauge and such. that yellow hat I made a couple weeks ago is HUGE. I need to pull it out and redo it or find a giant to gift it to. maybe it has a thing or two to do with the way I just grab yarn I like then choose needles I have (instead of buying new ones that are properly sized for the yarn) and dive in. hmm. well that doesn't always work.
the nice ladies at the yarn shop said they'd walk me through a tea leaves sweater when I'm ready. or another of my choosing. they have several sweaters and hats and other lovely things hanging on the walls with yarn samples and patterns. there is a big table in the middle of the shop and lots of comfy seating. it is just a couple doors down from the coffee shop…. they said that the tea leaves was a good first sweater because of this and that and the other. I'm not really sure the reasons, I maybe didn't listen as carefully once they said "we'll walk you through it".
this is fun.
