Yarn Ball, Finished Object & Ryne.

There are 10 pictures under here… but I think they are worth it.

Yarn Reveal #3
Yippie!! Another ball of Noro for either Lizard Ridge or the yoke on an EZ Yoke Sweater!

Yarn Reveal #4
I want to find some grey or charcoal wool to compliment the green and make socks for Ryne using the green for accents (toe, heel and a bit of cuff).

Le Slouch #1

Pattern: Le Slouch
Yarn: Araucania Nature Wool Chunky – colors 103 & 119
Variations: Tweaked pattern to accommodate big head and chunky yarn (added 6 stitches to cast on)
Next time: more increases and a bit longer 7 – 7.5 inches before decreases.

Le Slouch #2 (close up)

Le Slouch #3
My lovely model helping to show off more of the hat.

Le Slouch #4
I think the bulkiness of the yarn accentuated the flatness of the top. Not a bad thing. Next time will make it longer and add a few more increases at beginning to “Rasta”-fy it.

Le Slouch #5
Isn’t he a cutey? As you can see he’s “back to normal.”

    • Re: kniting project
      Socks take a while to knit, especially socks thin enough to wear with shoes. The yarn alone would cost me $6 – $8 (for the super cheap stuff). Most of the yarns that I like to use for socks average $25 – $35 a pair of socks. This is why I never make socks for money. Most folks aren’t willing to pay me for what my time is worth plus the supplies.
