bobbles and cables cap


The Bobbles and Cables Cap is done! What a fast, fun knit! And bobbles? Love them! I could see how they could become tedious when used too frequently, but this pattern had a good balance I thought. The cables and bobbles were infrequent enough that it kept things interesting, while giving me plenty of brainless, relaxing knitting too. I ended up using maybe 175-180 yards of my skein of Cascade 220 and knit this on one size smaller needle (size 6) than the pattern called for based on the comments on other Ravelry project pages (my Ravelry project page). It's comfy, but not quite as snug as I generally like in my hats so next time I knit this pattern I'll try going down to size 5's I think. This is project #2 out of my library for the love your library challenge this month--hurrah!


What's on the needles next? Take number two at making a baby sweater that actually fits for my little guy! This is the collar of the telemark pullover, which I'm knitting with Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in the Ascot colorway (which I'm loving!).
