I mentioned the hat last time. It's warm, it's floppy, and now it's photographed. Relm, by Jared Flood in the latest issue of knit.1.
It's knit out of Cascade Ecowool. I used my knitpicks interchangeables, which are performing admirably. Knitting all the cables, especially the 6 stitch cables, really tired out my hands. It's why I don't do a great deal of cable work - I find it tedious and the rewards minimal. But don't hold me to it; I'm a fickle knitter.
I'm still not quite sure how to wear this hat. But I like that it covers my ears and forehead; I have a bad habit of knitting caps too small, leaving my ears only partially covered.
I've cast on for a new pair of socks, something a little silly and outside my normal range of sock knitting, but hopefully kind of fun. They're mostly stockinette, so I am flying though them so far. And I've picked up Simurgh again and worked a few more repeats of the first edging. Slowly but surely I will finish it. I want to finish Simurgh and then return to the edging on my enormous, knit in black, Diamonds and Triangles stole. I have so many lace projects I want to tackle, but I hate having one hanging over my head like this.
