This post is just a quickie update to the one I wrote last week about my husband’s XC skiing antics. I was shown a free Dala Hat pattern that was just too perfect for my Dala winner. I used BT Arbor yarn for the hat. I liked knitting with the Arbor, but when I wet blocked it, the red color ran. There is slight discoloration remaining right next to the red sts in the hat. Not very noticeable, but disappointing.
It’s his birthday Wednesday, so this will be a cute little present for him. The “big race” is supposed to be next weekend (American Birkebeiner, aka “The Birkie”), but the temps have been record breaking in the 50’s and 60’s!! He is revved up to go, but it may not even happen! Bummer!
PS regarding the red color: it really isn’t bad enough to bother with. If red dye starts running down John’s face I may do something about it!! 😉
PS to Caryl — I actually did knit it in one day! Well, over a 24 hour period with sleep, etc. in there, too!
PS to Marla — Yay! Go for it and then share your FO on The Rainey Sisters Ravelry Group!
