In Rhythm: The Final Designs

As I mentioned yesterday, the In Rhythm hat collection got [hugely] delayed, but not forgotten. I’m still plugging away at the designs and will get them out as quickly as possible. My model (aka my sister) is coming to visit on Sunday and I plan on snapping some photos of finished designs so I can hurry up and complete them already.

This morning on my commute I’m working on one of the hats in question. I’m very close to the crown decrease, so this should end up photographed Sunday as well.

The yarn is Knit Picks Brava Sport in the “Almond” color. Brava is a great no-worry yarn. It’s 100% acrylic, which means it’s easy to care for and safe for sensitive skin. There is a light shine to the yarn. Needles are US size 4. The design Knits up surprisingly fast considering the stitch patterning and small needles.

I find I often work faster with this combo (moderate stitch pattern and smaller needles). My hands have the easiest time manipulating needles between sizes US 3 and US 8. And the semi-detailed stitching is enough to keep me interested and not put me to sleep. Does anyone else sometimes use a stockinette or garter stitch project to put themselves to bed?
