March FO: Summerhouse Hat

by Verónica

It is incredibly hard for me to believe that it’s already March. Two more months and my boys will be Seniors. One more year to prepare them and enjoy them before they begin their adult lives away from home. I didn’t quite intend for this post to begin so emotionally. I typed out “March FO” and my fingers just stopped typing as it sunk in.

Well, on to knitterly things. I knit up a quick hat for my March FO. It has some simple cable work that perks the hat up a bit. For the yarn, I chose a 100% extra fine merino superwash by Zara Chinè that I bought in Hong Kong

The pattern came from this book that the husband picked up for me on a trip to D.C. There are many other cool patterns for shawls, sweaters and scarves. The husband is the best!

Which reminded me of this chulo that I knit for him a few years ago. I had forgotten all about it. It was my first attempt at stranded color work.

I really liked the motif.

My April WIP is already on the needles. I’m making steady progress as I watch past seasons of House of Cards, The Killing and The Bridge. So much good programming out there!
