Another project has been added to the list of things on the go. When Amanda from Eight by Six blog showed a photo of the Blackberry Beanie that she was knitting, it occured to me that Eleanor may like this style of hat. I was right, so I printed off the pattern and ordered some yarn.
I'm using the suggested yarn, Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. It contains cashmere and merino and it's super soft. Eleanor chose a dark green shade known as basil as it will go well with her coat. These photos don't pick the colour up properly, it's actually a lovely shade, not the murky colour that's shown here.
It was Tuesday evening when I cast on and I'm about half way through now, it shouldn't take me long to finish.
You can see why this stitch is called blackberry stitch, the little bobbles look exactly like little blackberries.
My other projects have been put on the back burner for now but it shouldn't be long before I can get on with them again.
