I've started another baby stocking cap. I'm using Al's leftovers from a few years ago. How nice that yarn keeps well. What if it didn't? What if we had to freeze it or something?? I'm just finding random fair isle rows and adding them as I go.
I cast on 116 stitches for this hat because the yarn is more delicate than worsted. I ribbed for a couple of inches this time so I can roll up the brim. (Extra warm for tiny ears) Then I knitted for an equal amount in stockinette before I began decreasing as follows:
Knit 11 Knit 2 together.
Now Im knitting straight a bit before the next decrease. I think Im finished with fair Isle because you won't see it well as the hat tapers down.
I've been trying some frosty drinks and here are my opinions....
McDonalds Very Berry Chiller.....tastes rather like a chemical. Not so good.
Wendy's Frosty......fantastic, but you have to use a spoon it is so thick.
Dairy Queen Artic Freeze.....very very good but oh that head freeze
Dunkin Donuts Mocha Cooler....too much chocolate syrup....(Really? There can be too much? Yup)
Starbucks anything.....too expensive but wonderful
7/11 Slurpee.....it will do in the dead of winter when no one else has a frosty drink available.
please, chime in!
