Finito Friday

Finally! A finished knitted object and it only took the ride to and from Sarasota to A Good Yarn to make it happen. It’s The Prophet’s second Lightning Flame Hot Rod hat. Unfortunately, the first one (after of course saying too many times to count not to wash it in the washing machine and dry in the dryer) went through the washer and dryer and shrunk and felted. So knitted version 2 with superwash…combo of Cascade 220 Superwash and Cascade Pacific.

The mission down to A Good Yarn wasn’t as successful as I would have liked it to be. I wanted to check out YOTH Little Brother to use for the Botanical Yoke Sweater from Purl Soho and looking for black…no, black in Little Brother. Urgh! so now I have to investigate a second choice as I do not want to spend $200+ to make this sweater in their Cashmere Merino Bloom.

However, I did pick up some variegated DK weight skeins for Andrea Mowry’s Comfort Fade Cardi. Thinking that I will cast on sometime over the weekend after I decide which stash yarn will be yarn #4.
