|Two-toned gray watch cap|
To take my mind off thinking up horrible punishments for misbehaving yarn, I started another hat. It's just a simple watch cap styled hat knit in two shades of gray. Both yarns are Patons Classic Wool. The dark charcoal is Mercury and the gray & white tweedy one is Light Gray Marl.
I've previously knit several different things with the Light Gray Marl. I'm fascinated by it. I love tweedy, two-toned yarns when they are on the store shelves. Just LOVE them! But every time I've ever knit with two-toned tweedy type yarn, I've been unhappy with the results. Except for this Light Gray Marl. The knitted fabric always ends up looking like a well worn gray sweatshirt. Apparently, I have a thing for well worn gray sweatshirts. I also have a thing for the contrast between the dark charcoal and the pale gray tweed. It's a nice break from knitting shockingly bright pink stripes.
Got any suggestions for what to buy someone for Christmas when you refuse to knit them a cowl?
