FO: Wanderer

Standard

There have been a couple of projects that I’ve all but finished while you guys weren’t paying attention. One of which was this:

Wanderer was a pretty easy but engaging pattern to knit. The cables kept my attention, but the garter rib was pretty mindless, too. For some reason, the combination worked!  The only mod I did was to knit another couple of rows for a slouchy-er hat. No stress there!

I cast on for this pattern when I knew that I needed some portable stress knitting the weekend before I began student teaching (I began on a Wed.). I was casting off during my second to last undergraduate class, three days later. I even had time (ok, I was so bored, we were all doing 10 min. presentations and it was HORRIBLE) to make my first pom-pom in class to use up those last little bits of yarn. I think it came out pretty well!

The yarn is a little limey-er, too.

Although the FO is pretty cute, I think I’m giving it away to a friend who has been waiting for a Birthday present for, oh, three months. Woops! I used up an entire 100g stash skein of Spud and Chloe Sweater (55% wool, 45% cotton). I’m not kidding- the whole skein. No leftovers! I was afraid that the cotton content would make it harder on my hands to knit, but that didn’t really happen. Still, it is too cotton-y for me to want to steal it for myself, so I’m perfectly happy passing it on.

Unfortunately, it seems that I have temporarily misplaced my camera at my parents’ house. Sorry about that! Hopefully I can find a substitute until I get that back from them (along with my heavy coat, which I also seem to have left there).
