cyclone hat 2

FO – cyclone hat number 2

As promised I made a second cyclone hat. I wanted something a little thinner, a little more spring. The two layers the original cyclone hat is made from make for a warm and cozy hat in winter, but Berlin winters are long and often pretend to be nice spring days, when then they show you their windy side and you get cold again. So an airier hat was totally up my alley.

The original pattern is here.

for this version I used:

Framed – February a little late, but still

So, it’s already way into March, about time to look back at last month, yes? And you know February is a really short month , I don’t feel blame for looking back when it’s almost April, haha. Also my mind is still somehow in February, men are blocking the thinking. I really don’t know if you want to know about such stuff. You know I’m single and don’t have the life of your average “knitting and writing about it and my happy little life in a blog” person. There is no husband who brings me flowers without no reason or two small kids that smile funnily into the camera. I’m single, I enjoy (and struggle) with the ups and down this comes with. 

it is just not right

I started and finished a cowl.

Right now I am looking for another knit. Something smaller, at least in the beginning, that I can carry around, take on trips. So I’m shopping my stash and find not only a surprisingly good amount of yarn to choose from, but also more WIPs. not-fair. I thought I listed all in my last busted post. But no, there is also the mini hexagon table cloth I started about a year ago and the dotted rays by westknits, which I realize just now I never shared before. Although that one was quite a bitch! Beautiful knitting
