I’m feeling giddy not having the leopard pants hanging around my neck anymore.
I cast on the center square hat yesterday while chillin’ with some friends and had it done by the time I went to bed. I wasn’t sure how it would go because, while I did a Fair Isle sweater for my first knitting project 10 years ago, I haven’t really done any color knitting since. All along, I didn’t even realize that what I had learned was Fair Isle. Jaala set me straight about that, but whenever I looked at patterns thinking about trying again, it seemed tooo complicated.
As I knit center square, I realized that my fingers remembered Fair Isle, even if my brain was kind of fuzzy when it came to the details. I carried the yarn a bit too tight on the hat (Now I’m remembering…..) so the shape of it wasn’t perfect. I cast on another this afternoon with a different couple of yarn left-overs to give it a second shot. And then, all riled up, I went and ordered Eunny Jang’s Anemoi Mittens.
So there we go.
