The other day I finished my Turn-a-Square hat:
I used Cascade 220 heathers and Noro Silk Garden. I like the blend of the two yarns. I am still tweaking this pattern a little bit. Mostly because I looked at my notes from the last time and was all “WTF?!” and didn’t know what I meant.
When I was working on this, sometimes the Cascade looked like a warm olive green, and other times it looked brown. It’s sort of a blend between the two. The colour name is Yakima Heather. Hmmm. The only Yakima I know of is Yakima Canutt who was a stuntman/extra on a lot of John Wayne movies. Yakima is also a city in Washington. Interesting.
I started a pair of matching mittens. I thought I had a second pair of 3.5 mm bamboo dps and looked around the house, but I don’t. I have multiple sets of 3.0 mm and 4.0 mm but not 3.5 mm. So I must have done the previous mittens one at a time. (Instead of concurrently like I do my socks.)
