I failed miserably at Saturday Sky, but maybe Saturday Temp will become a regular feature.
It was cold this morning.
Last Saturday around 8:15 it was 20º. Today at just before 9:00 it was 14º.
It warmed up in the afternoon -- when I went by the same sign around 3:00, it was 15º!
While I was out this morning I stopped by Crazy Girl to buy some size 10.5 DPNs to use in making this hat for my niece. And some yarn just happened to come home with me.
Three skeins of Cascade Pastaza for a Ryan's Hat for me.
And a BIG skein (8 oz/325 yards) of High Prairie Fibers Big Horn, in Evergreen. This yarn was hand-painted for Crazy Girl (says so on the label!).
I've been working on Honeybee and will have pictures next time. I also cast on for my niece's hat. Extra bulky yarn (Blue Sky Alpaca Bulky Hand Dyed) and size 10.5 needles supposedly means fast knitting, but each stitch seems to take me longer. However, there aren't as many stitches, so I guess it works on in the end!
