Pattern: Mock Rib Watch Cap (free pattern on Ravelry)
Yarn: Cascade Eco-Cloud in Bunny (#1804) bought here
Needles: Circular and DPNs 5.5mm
I did not even change the yarn - or the colour! I am glad. I had never knitted with Cascade Eco Cloud, and the yarn is actually really different from any other yarn I had knitted with. I tried to capture it on the pictures, it is not twisted, it is sort of braided - and so stretchy! It is a merino and alcapa blend - and I don't seem to be allergic to it, result! It would be great for sweaters in the winter, and probably very forgiving for sizing.
I have bought about a girl (Lindsey Kelk) on Ibooks recently - after seeing a lot of recommendations on twitter. I have yet failed to make it to Chapter 1, so cannot tell you a lot about it - but it seems to be the perfect chilling out book!
Linking to Tamis and Ginny's today.
