Gretel

Finished up Gretel tonight and I absolutely love it! I never used to be much of a hat person, but I also didn't have to walk around on the cold, windy streets of New York back then either!

Gretel Finished

Gretel

Gretel by Ysolda Teague
Yarn: Rowan Kid Classic Shade 852
Needles: US size 9 and 7
Size: Regular

This was such a satisfyingly projects after the 2 secret knitting projects I had to complete in February. So satisfying that I almost didn't want the project to end. I didn't make any modifications - well, besides my gauge being way off! I went up 2 needle sizes because I thought I was too tight, but I guess I should not have trusted myself. It was supposed to measure about 8" in diameter, mine measured 11". Oops! Still fits well though, even with the gauge blunder. Thank goodness for hats being more forgiving than a sweater!

Beautiful! I just picked up two skeins of Kid Classic at a sale and was wondering what I'd do with them. Did you use just a single skein?

It's been a long while. Your hair looks great and you look very happy. I remember you had just got engaged when I left NYC. Sigh...time flies.
