Work in Progress Wednesday 194







 Hi everyone. I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was nice, despite staying close to home. My husband has been working a ton lately, so it was great just to hang out with one another. I got a little knitting time and finished my Frais hat that I hope to share soon. 





I'm not usually a big hat knitter, but right after finishing the Frais hat, I cast on a Sockhead. A few of my friends are making this hat, or about to start it so I thought I would join along. I'm using my good friend Rijel's yarn, Black Market Wool is her company. This is Milo Twist Sock in colorway No Use for a Name. Gorgeous, right?! Check her out at blackmarketwool.com. I am changing the pattern slightly, as a lot of people have complained that it ends up too big. I'm using a size US 2 needle instead of a US 2.5, and I also cast on 136 sts instead of 144.

 That's it for me today. I hope you have a great rest of your week and if you live in my part of the world, stay cool!

  3. You always choose such colourful wool, I am a bit scared of variegated wool, but always make it look great. Jo x
