As Promised – First Knitting in Months!

alpaca and merino hat for Aichbee

It was too hot, and Aichbee was too small, for me to be knitting very much this summer.

I did knit her a cardigan, which I finished while we were in Lyme Regis. However it somehow got mixed up in the giant pile of washing that came home with us and was shrunk in the wash. So sad. So I went back and bought the exact same yarn with the intention of knitting it again. I should start that soon to be honest.

However this is the hat that has just come off my needles. It’s a mixture of DK Toft Alpaca and some old Rowan merino which I once knit a jumper from. It was a mindless knit, small enough to get on and off the needles quickly despite the busy-ness of everyday life. And it looks wonderful with her new winter coat.

There is enough of both yarns for me to knit her some mittens to match, which are currently on my needles.

Next up – according to Ellarr – is a hat for her. In blue.  (Hopefully I’m getting to the point when I can start shopping from myself again and knit it in Oxford Kitchen Yarn.)

Talking of which, here is a sneak preview of this autumn’s dyeing…
