Panache
Wednesday, December 07, 2005

Here's the hat and scarf I made for my sister in law for Christmas. She wanted something brown or cream to go with her camel coat. I was dying to use one of KnitPicks luxury yarns, so I chose Panache in Cloud. It's a bulky weight 40% baby alpaca, 20% Krissy's Hat & Scarfcashmere and 20% extra fine merino blend. I made a basic 2x2 rib hat with a brim which fits me well, at least. Krissy can tell me how it fits her when it arrives. She requested the scarf to be long and skinny. I'm not really pleased how it came out though. I'd rather I'd made it a little wider. And I cheated by making on my knitting machine. Just the scarf though. I knit the hat in the round on wooden dpns.

I have a color card in front of me and I really like it in Cranberry, Mulled Wine, Moss and Slate. Perhaps the selfish knitter deserves another scarf. There's also a sport weight version called Ambrosia, minus the silk and extra fine merino, which would make a nice pair of gloves.

I'm plugging along on Grandma's Throw, almost half done. And I ordered votive candles for my "Sachet Gift Experience". I went with Yankee Candles, that way I could get two for each gift bag. The more the merrier, I say.
