Sometimes life happens and the knitting slows down. I actually finished a few things but it also took me a little longer to wash/block them.
Pattern: Cotuit Sands Cowl - infinity version
Yarn: Kollage Riveting Sport in Sand Denim
Needles: Kollage Square circulars in size 8 - true to anecdotal evidence, I'm definitely tighter on square needles than round ones
Cosima cardigan. Made much easier knitting these 2-at-a-time. I didn't have to worry about my gauge changing between the 2 sleeves. I'm contemplating doing the 2 fronts at the same time as well.
As much as I adore free patterns, there can be drawbacks, especially when there's no gauge specified, just yarn type and needle size. As much as I would wish it, this hat is not close to done as I need to add a button to the tab and frog back and re-knit the crown decreases which did not turn out at all pixie-like as the Quinny hat should. I'm sure my row gauge is much bigger than the designer's. Washing & blocking it totally didn't help either 'cept to even out the stitches.
I'm taking a look at another free pattern inspired by the hat worn by Quinn in an episode of Glee and the Meathead hat pattern that I bought at Stitches West. Hopefully one of them will give me a more pixie-ish point.
