Work in Progress 193

Hi everyone! I hope you had a great weekend and are having an even better week. I have a new project to talk about today! Seriously, I need to stop starting new stuff and focus on finishing, but alas...

I started this hat just the other day. It's the Frais hat. I'm making the 21" which is what I normally make, but it's pretty big, so that's a little disappointing. I like my hats snug but comfy. I'm still having a great time knitting it, and am learning new thing. The brim of this hat is doubled over and seamed to itself! Pretty cool and the first time I've done this. It's a pay patten, so can't go into details, but you'll have to check it out. I think if it was going to fit a little snugger, I would love it, because I love my ears nice and toasty.

Some of you might be wondering what yarn that is, or colorway anyway. It's a new colorway to the Candy Skein line, and this particular version is in Savory fingering. The colorway is called Candied Licorice and is light pink with areas of black, white and purple. Cool, eh?  I sold a few skeins of it on Sunday on the website, but will have more in both Savory and Yummy fingering Thursday. Be sure to check Instagram and/or Twitter for the latest breaking Candy Skein updates. :)

That's it for me today! I hope you have a great rest of your week.


  1. Your hair must handle hats better than mine. I like to keep my hats a bit loose so my hair isn't plastered to my head!

  2. I love the WIP Wednesday idea!! Your colorway is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!

  3. That's pretty yarn! And the pattern looks nice too - might have to have a hunt for that :)

  4. Can't wait to see it finished. :-)

  5. The yarn is lovely, I bet it will be a gorgeous hat :)
