Finished Object—Odessa

October 18, 2006 at 2:27 pm (FO, knitting)

Yay! After yesterday’s debacle, I’ve finally finished Odessa.
Progress on Odessa hat.
Pattern: Odessa by Grumperina

Source: Magknits, February 2006

Materials: Knitting Fever Peru DK (70% Merino, 20% Alpaca, 10% Silk, 124 yds); Susan Bates Needles (16″ Circulars, Size 5 & 6; 7″ DPNs, Size 6)

Started: October 14, 2006

Completed: October 17, 2006

This is a great pattern—interesting enough to keep your attention, yet it makes perfect TV knitting. It’s a small hat, the perfect size for my sister’s more delicately sized noggin, but if I were to make it for myself I’d probably add about an inch more before the crown decreases (I cart around the classic large Irish melon . . . thanks, Dad). I won’t use this yarn again, except to use up the rest of my extra ball. It’s soft and has nice stitch definition, but it actually broke while on the ball winder. Of course, that may just be a result of my bad juju yesterday!

Yay! Another Christmas present in the bag! Onward to the baby sweater!
