Hats, hats, hats...

Dear friends,

How are you? Here the weather is sooo cold, at least for what I have been used to in the last years... I have seen snow falling for the first time in many many years... and wow, it's chilly! Also, my computer died, but I have able to save, at least, my knitting photos... argh. Well, I have been knitting a lot lately, because I had no computer... and I have been doing four hats. My brother, as I mentioned on list, wanted me to knit the Jayne Cobb hat. I found a lovely pattern on the Internet, and the friends from the Knitting Novices list also helped a lot with their advices. My first version is a bit too loose: one thread for rather big needles. Then, I discovered (thank you Fellow Novices!) that I could have double yarn from the same skein! Thus I was able to do a double-strand version, which is much stabler and stronger. Also slightly bigger, which helps (my brother has a rather big head).

My parents also asked for hats. This is the first time I knit something for my parents or brother. I did a dark, plain stockinette hat, with a 2x2 ribbing edge for dad, hope he likes it. For my mother, a rather colourful one (I had the remaining yarn from the baby sweater I did before Christmas...). I am afraid it is going to be slightly too short... Well... Let me know if you like them :) I am rather proud about the second version of the Jayne Cobb hat. Looks perfect, at least in my humble opinion!

Flavio :)

Flavio: molts petons des de Barcelona, són molt bonics els teus barrets. Salutacions als teus pares i germà.
Com va per Suïssa? Aquí només hem tingut una setmana d'hivern de moment... De totes maneres jo recordo que un any així va nevar al març.

Thanks Mary Anne! I am very excited about the stripe-sweater I am doing now... it's a slow process but it will be my biggest sweater ever, maybe for a children aged 4!


PS: I love your blog!
