Growing

Alrighty.  You should be able to see what’s going on here now a bit better.

It’s about 4.5 inches tall now and I’m really liking it.  The colors absolutely work together (not sure I could wear that particular color of greeny-yellow without looking like I’d eaten bad clams, but the sprocket in question totally can).  I’m doing this neat scrunchy stitch that sort of rucks the fabric up into little riffles.  Let’s see if I can show that to you, it’s hard to see straight on, but if we swing around and look from the side maybe?

And no, it’s not colorwork.  It’s glorified stripes.  One color at a time is all I can handle.  I’m going to play with the stripe thing and use these same yarns for the next hat too.  The goal is ‘look like they go together but don’t leave me knitting the same thing twice.’  Should be fun.
