In honor of Star Wars day today, I cast on a 4th project on top of the three that are already in the works.
This month’s project is the Variance hat, and the technique is catching long floats in Fair Isle work.
The project photo you see there is the Designer’s Choice yarn colors – I got the Alternative colors, which is the yarn you see here. I have done a fair amount of colorwork, but I’m interested to get into the tutorials on this technique and see if she catches floats differently than I do. Always good to learn something new!
I did get a start on the ribbing, but am having difficulties with my needles. The only ones I have in the right size (1.5s) are not really long enough for the number of stitches, so it’s been kind of a hassle keeping the stitches jammed onto the needles. I’m trying to decide where I should just struggle through, or put the project aside for a little bit and order some of the right size and length circulars. I only have 7 more rows in the ribbing until I can move up to size 2s, which I have plenty of, so it’s kind of a tough choice.
But in any case, may this fourth project go well, and May the Fourth Be With You!
