It’s a wrap … or rather … a beanie :P

No talking … just details:

Project Details:

  • Pattern: Tuva
  • Designer: Turvid Design
  • Yarn: KP Merino Style.  Hand-dyed by me.  Blogged here
  • Modifications: Shortened main section to 5.5 inches instead of 7 as per the pattern.
  • Other comments: The number of k2tog gave me a callus on my fingers but I still enjoyed the pattern.  Used 9 inch circulars to decrease but coming to the end they were hard to maneuver.  Got some ladders that are noticeable by me but I doubt anyone else will see them.  I guess I’ll have to revisit both dpns and magic loop techniques.  Or … I might just do the Traveling Loop.

ETA: This project is my first completed for My Sister’s Knitter KAL/CAL and the fifth for my Summer Sizzle Stash Dash.

ETA again — This project also makes the cut for my Craft Book Challenge for July.  The pattern has been in my Ravelry library since early 2012.

    1. Thanks so much Andi! 😀 It’s amazing how much I learn with little, seemingly less complicated projects. Never thought this hat would teach me so much.

  1. Beautiful! Seems like it’s time to knit something without any k2tog’s 🙂

    I use the traveling loop method a lot and I think it’s the best way to avoid ladders.

    1. Yaaaaaaaaaas!!! I tried to work on my other WIP hat today … my hand was NOT having it!!! LOLOL!

      I really appreciate the knit advice; I’m definitely going to try the traveling loop on the other hat I have in hibernation.

      See, this why you’re one of my knitting she-roes! I should just get your number and put you on speed dial! LOLOL!

      1. Ok 🙂 I love having knitting buddies!

        Ps. Just friended you on goodreads. Despite the fact that I have yet to post any books that I’ve read. Siiiiigh.

        1. I’m so serious … I”m going to pm you!

          You just got back from a super intense volunteer stint … you get a pass. Just add a few and you’ll see … you’ll have a queue before you know it.

          Goodreads really got me reading again; it’s my favourite hobby. I think my undercover competitive edge just loves to see the count increase. I can feel Fall coming so it’s about to be ON with the reading!

          1. Tell me about it: I’m so looking forward to fall. Enter knitting and reading season. Cuddled under a blanket with a nice cup of tea. Damn, I sound like I’m 50 years old. Although, I hear that’s the new 30?

            1. I’m older than you so just call me Granny Diva cause a good book, some knitting, a cuddly blanket and some tea … that’s my kinda partay!!! 😛

              My tea collection rivals my yarn collection! No lie!

              1. Haha. I just hit up the tea store today and stocked up. Still doesn’t rival my yarn stash but I’m hoping that one day I will have a whole cupboard dedicated to tea.
