    A new hat.

    Posted by twit2knit on April 29, 2011

    Easter weekend we went to Ullswater in Cumbria, camping. As you can imagine it was wonderful and the area itself is stunning. One down side is by God does it get cold at night brrr.

    I took my Shroom with me and it did a great job but I wanted something to cover my ears better. I found it in Adela Illichmanova’s Capucine. A lovely hat, well written pattern and it knitted up real fast.

    I used Teddy Andora Chunky in pink and 5mm(US8) circs, this gave me quite a dense fabric. If I make this hat again I think I’ll use either 5.5mm(US9) or 6mm(US10) needles. Just waiting for next time we go camping (hopefully spring bank holiday at the end of May) so I can wear it.
