WIP Wednesday, hat-a-thon edition

My quest to knit up the hat patterns I've had paired with yarn in my library for ages continues! Next up, the bray cap (a Jared Flood pattern) with even yummier Sweet Georgia superwash worsted yarn (colorway: saltwater). Lace + cables + yummy yarn = LOVE all around!


And since I challenged myself in January to make 2015 the year I deal with all the abandoned WIPs that I keep stored in bags that hang from a coat rack in my dining room, I pulled one bag out to work on. I made a pair of Ysolda Teague's garter stitch mitts two years ago, and I kept the pattern and needles with the leftover yarn with the intention of making at least one more pair. (perhaps a third could be made as well? we'll see ...) As you can see, one mitt is nearly done!

  1. I love the colour of your mitts - that's really effective and they look beautiful. It can be really satisfying coming back to old works in progress, I think. Like starting a new project but with less work to go before it's finished!

  2. I love the bray cap pattern, and I think it will look really fun in that blue! I can't believe I haven't seen that garter stitch mitt pattern around before, but I really love how it's working up in the variegated yarn :)

  3. I love Jared Flood's hat patterns. And that blue yarn is so spectacular!
