The End!

I feel like I’ve been knitting with dark red Rowan 4-ply soft foreeeeever by now. I bought a bag of 15 balls back in 2006 or 7, when it was being discontinued (who doesn’t love some high quality wool at less than $4/ball?). It languished in the stash for years, but now it is finally about to be all gone! If you’ve been reading along, you already know I’ve used it to make a cardigan, three gloves, and a tam. Now I’m using up the last ball with one more hat:


This piece is knit from the top down, and finished off with a simple lace edging, of which I have just a few more inches to go. And then that will be the end of my bag of 4-ply soft. Just in time too, I think. I still love the yarn and the color, but I can feel a little voice starting to pick up with a whine of “still? again??? ENOUGH WITH THE RED ALREADY!“. So, next project will be aimed at satisfying that nagging inner voice–no more red for the forseeable future!
