In continued reflection on Fiberuary, one of the month themes was “texture”.
I knitted a new Ballband dishcloth for myself (note: this is a non-ravelry pattern link; also, the pattern may be blocked or obscured if you use privacy tools that block pinterest links, e.g. Privacy Badger).
I am still working on another “texture” project: a cabled hat knit from 2-ply corriedale wool that I spun myself. The yarn I spun varies in weight from sock weight to heavy worsted, so the knitting isn’t super regular, but I wanted to challenge myself to knit with my hand spun yarn, even before it was more regular. I chose the Slouchy Bubbles hat pattern (pattern available as a PDF) because I had made a hat using the pattern a few years ago, and I remembered finding it relatively straight forward and enjoyable.
I am hoping that my gauge is loose enough that it will turn out slouchy, but even if it turns out denser / stiffer than I’d like, I have been pleasantly surprised by how the hand spun yarn is knitting up.
