Well is the first cousin of so. so? so! soooooo~ only well can be, well? well! wellll and the two syllable we-yell. I think my towels are the latter. They are done, hemmed, washed and dried. They almost don't look like a set, yet I tried to chose solid colors related to the variegated weft. They're more like step-siblings than sibs. I'm not a fan of variegated weft - too bad I rashly bought three cones at one time.
These both are from the same M&W pattern. I love the pattern but it just doesn't work well here. These wefts is peacock and beige. I'm not sure what I should have used to promote the warp but this wasn't it. I'm already thinking about the next set and how to make this pattern shine.
The left towel is a M&W variation in teal and the right is tabby in the variegated. It's a good thing that these towels are for our kitchen because I wouldn't be pleased to give them away. On the other hand, I knew that I was experimenting.
I think I was experi-
menting here too. I've been working on this hat for grandson Kiernan. I'm using some handspun alpaca because I thought it would be warmer. I can't control the rippled brim. I kept knitting thinking that it would get better but it has gotten worse, or perhaps it always was worse. I've phished through Ravelry to see what other flap hat knitters are doing for the brim and haven't come up with much direction. One woman said that you must knit a very tight cable cast on. I guess I'll try that after I rip this out. I saw another hat that does a row of knit, two rows of purl and then back to knit for the body. If you know the solution, please do tell.
