... lots of disconnected thoughts for today, with pictures !
first up ...
this is sleeve #2. now, i've not finished the back yet. i think i will do that when this sleeve comes off the needles. i'm also thinking i'll knit the fronts at the same time on one needle.
i am thinking the sleeves might end up being a wee bit long, but i'm not going to worry about that until after blocking and assembly. it's not that big a deal to rip out some sleeve and reknit sleeve caps. besides, once you're in the cap, it's all decreases.
malabrigo merino worsted. plain jane. undyed. i got to thinking recently that i don't have (hardly) any plain and basic hats. most of them are knitted with variegated yarn, or are things like the devil hat. so, i think it's time for a grown up classic hat. i was originally thinking of doing a watchman's cap, or something with cables, but now i've really fallen for the texture of this hat.
fresh yarn ! ... courtesy of corbett. i wound a hank of it today. it's mystery yarn. he got it at rhinebeck, but the yarn didn't have a tag. i'm calling it sock yarn. i'm going to pretend it's handwash merino.
and i'm going to pretend it has at least 175 yds/hank.
