I didn’t even get to chance to post about casting on this project, and now *poof*, here’s the FO post! As you might remember I was waiting patiently for the extra yarn to arrive for my Sperry sweater, and once that arrived it was sweesh swoosh and the sweater was done. You’d think, “great! Finally it’s done, nothing can stop you now!” Well about 1000 ends to weave in certainly stopped me, so the test knit for this cap quickly pushed itself in between.
Yarn: Malabrigo Sock in Violeta Africana
This is a super fun and quick knit, perfect for a bit of lace knitting in the now warmer weather. It only uses up a small amount of sock yarn, and I went for the lovely Malabrigo sock. It’s pretty hard to capture the beauty of the colour, but trust me it is quite smashing, and I felt it suited the Blossom theme of the project. I’m not sure I’d actually use it to make socks though, but perfect for these kinds of projects. The cap itself is so light to wear and combined with the soft yarn it works perfectly for the current weather. As I’m usually quite bad with knitting weather appropriate things I’m so pleased with it.
And now it’s time for something fun, a ~*giveaway*~! Brandy has generously offered a copy of the Blossom cap pattern to one of my readers. All you have to do is leave a comment below before Saturday June 6th 12:00 CEST (be sure to include your Ravelry id in the comment).
