Ripley!

I made a hat. I am stocking up for winter, in case you hadn't noticed.

365-144: Ripley!

It's Ripley, and holy crap does it knit up fast!


Ripley!

I have been wearing it pretty much non-stop since Thursday!

I made the lace band, and the less-slouchy version. It used much less then one ball of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes bulky. I made the large size, but my gauge was also screwed up (despite my swatch) so it came out small. But meh, wool stretches anyways.

In other news, I shrunk my Selbu Modern (purposely) because it was too big for my non-dreadlock head. I threw it in with my laundry, on warm, and it came out perfect!

365-143: At the laundromat.

This is, unfortunately the only photo I have of it at the moment, before I blocked it again. But it's awesome, trust me.
Also, just for reference, my hat is made in Rowan Felted Tweed. The label says is is machine washable. I consulted Ravelry, and there's a lot of pissed people on there saying that it's not washable, and my felting of the hat proves that for me! Always do a test wash, don't just throw your knits in the washing machine willy-nilly!

I'm in Toronto right now! Tomorrow I'm going to the Royal Winter Fair with my mom. We will eat a lot, drink, look at pretty bunnies, sheep, and fleeces, and have a lot of fun!
