finishing wool

I have a huge stash, and lately it has become really enormous. I have made the resolution of trying to reduce it, knitting as much as possible.
So I'm attacking various wools, and in an attempt to finish the wool I used for the onda su onda hat I have knitted a nice, little tam, from a basic pattern by Ann Bud.

Isn't it beautiful?

Following yesterday's post, here is something else I have knitted.

It's a citron, knitted with Kauni wool and I'm really pleased with it! Maybe next time I'll use larger needles, though I'm happy with the fabric density I obtained using 4mm needles, still the fabric is a bit "stiff"!

Anyhow, I'm so happy of it, that as soon as I finished I cast on another shawl with the same yarn (I had two skeins ;-)!).

hard life...

Life has been hard lately. No worries, no real tragedies, but stupid things at work and A LOT of pressure. I haven't exploded, yet, and keep comforting myself with some "evening therapy".

So let's start with the hats:


This one is a wonderful Woolywormhead pattern (rav link) called Aeonium. It's very easy to knit and the result is really impressive.


I knitted it with 4.5 mm needles with an unknown 100% wool that has a fantastic stitch definition!

This other hat is again from Woolly Wormhead! The pattern is Medici (rav link) and it is another beauty.


This time I used an alpaca blend and the result is super soft!


Finally a really clever pattern from a Ravelry friend that I test knit.


I love it and I'm so lucky I could make it!
