I have a few finished but not yet blogged objects I wanted to show you. Let's start with the Noro Kureyon Spiral Hat:
Yarn: Noro Kureyon
Needles: Circular and DPN 5,5 mm (I think)
Pattern: inspired by a few One Skein Hat googled.
This is my fourth hat. This time I got the right size, even if it is a little bit too deep. I don't mind: I wear it folded and it hides the less-liked color that came just at the wrong moment.
I like the color and feel of this yarn. The hat is not warm enough for the icy-wind we have here those days, but it is otherwise pleasant to wear. I'm particularly proud of my spiral pattern, and would (will) knit it again with great pleasure. I have had largely enough yarn, and will not be so worried next time I try a hat with the Kureyon.
BTW it's the second time I used that yarn. One of my very first knitted object was a two-skeins scarf, from Joelle Hoverson's Last Minute Knitted Gifts that I made for my daughter. I didn't bother to wash it when finished, nor block it. but I learned since that the wool is much more comfortable and soft after a gentle wash. So I did wash Plume's scarf. Hopefully she will agree that it's not so itchy after all.
As for the pattern, I googled "one skein noro hat" and combined the information I found with the oh-so-inspiring beauties of Marnie Mac Lean of yourse i wanted something like her Nautilus Hat. But mine is knitted from bottom to top (I think her method may be best for sizing). I like the sort of ribbing I get with the diminutions.
Here is another photo, to show you the wonderful colors of the yarn:
edited to add: Pattern to come VERY soon!!!
