With the end of winter fast approaching I thought I'd share some of the last pictures of the snow I took last week. With the warmer temps this week most of the snow has melted. It looks like Spring is on its way!
For my first cast on I used the knitted cast on. I didn't like how it looked so I pulled it out and tried again with the long tail cast on. This worked much better.
I knit a pattern that has been in my favourites for a long time. It was easy and fun to knit and I'll definitely knit more of them. Here is a view from the top and the side. I love the stocking stitch and reverse stocking stitch ridges.Pattern - Wurm
Yarn - Ziraldo Alpaca's Tweed an Alpaca/Merino blend
Needles - 3mm for the ribbing, 3.5mm for the body of the hat
Modifications - Ribbing instead of the stocking st folded hem, I didn't knit the last repeat of the pattern as I was running out of yarn but I'm happy with the length. It fits perfectly.
