Give ’em the old razzle-dazzle!December 29, 2008 at 3:40 pm | Posted in hats, WIPs | 1 Comment
When I see the colours on the black background of this hat-in-progress, I can’t help but think of coloured sparks, like fireworks.
And so I keep thinking of it as my Razzle Dazzle hat. So that’s what I’m calling it.
It’s my first real jump into using two colours in a single row, and I’m rather enjoying it. I’m knitting it from Paton’s Classic Wool Merino, some leftover colours from various projects. Except for that green; that’s part of a skein of tapestry wool, in approximately the same thickness as the rest of the yarn. I’m knitting it on a US 6 circular, a little tighter than I’d normally use, but I figured with all the colour changes it’d end up a little looser than I’m used to, so I could compensate this way. If it works out, great. If not, then I can rip it back and call it a lesson learned.
I’m fairly sure it’ll fit me. And if it doesn’t, well, I’m more than sure I know a few people who might like it who would fit into it a little better. So that’s a win-win situation.
