Yes, I'm back at knitting, and reading, doing what I love the most. And it's fantastic!
So, this week, i have made numerous hats, unraveling old projects to make room for the new. that;s the great thing about knitting, you always can start over, recycle, reuse, upcycle... So have a look at the latest! Check out my ravelry page to see the pattens used.
You may recognize this yarn from an older project of mine. The hat was too loose along the rim, so I unravelled and started afresh. This is my all time favorite yarn, Katia's Azteca. I also made a sweater out of their red variations. The softness of the yarn, enhanced by alpaca wool, makes it not only a pleasure to work with, but a joy to wear.
I made a tam out of Katia's New Nepal a last year, but again, I was terrible at judging my gage, and it fit poorly. This project took me a day and I just love the colors.
Katia's all natural, 'Love wool' wool and alpaca blend feels fantastic, but there's really nothing in a skein. I barely had enough to finish the cap, and it's short enough as it is. But doesn't it feel nice!
I wanted to try a new variegated wool, and loved Katia's Inca wool. I invented a pattern, following my all time favorite moss stitch, and love the finished result.
Now I have no idea what wool this hat is made of. I found it in the cellar! I felted it and embroidered stars along the top with a metallic wool. I'm pretty happy with it!

I've been out of the loop a few months due to issues with visas and schools. You cannot imagine just how obnoxious paperwork can be! Well, maybe you can, but ouch, this is a real pain!
So here I am, back in the saddle again. And life is good! I'm doing a big to logo design for a few organizations while continuing my physics studies. I'm also going to be placing links to my shops here so that you can see my designs and creations. I hope you enjoy!
