Umm, someone didn’t pay attention to gauge!! In my defense, I did use a size 8 needle which is pretty small for Cadena but you know that I am a loose knitter. And, when I am making something more involved or larger than a hat, I am good about gauge. But, I was so excited about Jared’s design that I could not wait to get started!!
Here’s the “Ta Da”
My first successful felting project!! Please note how nicely I shaped the crown! Yep, I am thrilled!!
I used one and a half skeins of Cadena, Saffron, to make my unfelted (gaugeless) hat. So, I will give away two skeins of Cadena as my Knit Buddy drawing. That will probably be enough for two hats knit at the correct gauge! Please add a comment to this blog entry and you will be eligible for the drawing next week, November 11th. <
