Friday Eve FO

My quickie hat is done!

The yarn is some bulky weight yarn that I got from Ms. Monster in a yarn destash she did a little while ago. It is one of her yarns, but did not come with a tag, so I don’t know what the colorway is. I didn’t use a pattern. It was knit top down, starting with 8 stitches on a pinhole cast-on, then increasing 8 stitches every other row until I got to 64 stitches. Then I just knit until the amount of yarn left was making me nervous. Did a few rows of k2 p2 ribbing, and cast off when I was pretty sure the amount of yarn left wasn’t going to be enough. I had 6 inches of yarn left!

OK, seriously, I weighed out the amount of yarn one round took, then weighed the remainder periodically to know when I needed to bind off. There was a little bit of method. Not a lot, but a little ๐Ÿ™‚ My Mom loves green, so it went to her pretty much right away. And thus I am entered into the (Ravelry link) Great Green KAL!

Do you like participating in KALs (or CALs, for the crocheter)? Why or why not?

  1. Aw, at first I thought you were a risk-taker, then you spoiled that impression by admitting that you weighed your yarn to make sure there was enough to complete the hat. Anyway, ending with only 6 inches leftover is quite an achievement for quiteayarnblogger!
