I suspect that this will only get worse.
Good thing I've been able to get some knitting finished around here.
Another one of Jean's Diagonal Hats and a beadless Odessa.
Project Specs : Diagonal Hat
Yarn : Noro Silk Garden 205 (3 skeins = 2 hats!)
Needles : 4.5mm addis
Started : December 4, 2006
Finished : December 5, 2006
The last version was done on 4mm needles and the size difference was quite remarkable. I still had a little bit of yarn leftover but if you want 2 hats out of 3 skeins I'd advise knitting one on 4mm needles and one on 4.5mm needles.
Project Specs : Odessa Hat
Yarn : Sandnesgarn Smart (5936 I think)
Needles : 3.5mm old casein dpns (ick) and 4mm dpns (my old stand-by Aeros)
Started and Finished : December 5, 2006
I want to try one with beads! This is a really quick knit and I love the organic decreases at the top.
Can you stand another clever hat design?
Project Specs : Short-Row Hat by Veronik Avery
Yarn : Noro Silk Garden #233 (I think this is another one where if I had 3 skeins, I could have made 2 hats)
Needles : 4 and 4.25mm dpns
Started and Finished : December 6, 2006
The hat turned out quite long but it can easily be worn with the brim up. I didn't manage to pick up 32 stitches at the top but it was easy to fudge and blocked out nicely.
