My knitting is still off track. This week I've started the same hat four times and every single time I reach the same place in my knitting I unravel it. Sighs. Can't seem to make any real breakthrough. I'm also struggling with the sleeves for the cardigan I'm working on for my friend's daughter. Nothing is going right in my knitting. I think I know the reason behind all of the false starts and the hurdles. I will go into this more very very soon. In the meantime, I washed and blocked Merlot :)
If you look closely you'll notice that Merlot can be worn three ways :- 1) slouchy toque, 2) as a beanie with the brim turned up and 3) beanie with brim turned inwards.
