Aside from dyeing gobs of fiber and mildly stressing about the possibility of moving, here’s what I’ve been up to:
I’m pleased to say that it only took five tries to get the earflaps right. It’s interesting how cables affect the shape of the flap, and you have to put the increases in the right places or they look reeeeally wonky.
I’m in the process of transforming the pages of scribbled notes to a coherent and readable pattern — if you’ve always wanted to knit a cabled earflap hat and wouldn’t be scared to test it for me, leave a comment and I’ll send it your way. As with the earflapless cable hats, there’s a few-cabled and a many-cabled version.
