I started Lacecap from Knitty on the 8th. It’s a pattern for a lace skull cap, which I’m knitting for my best friend, Mandy. I bought the yarn for it last summer, I think…I meant to start it before but didn’t for whatever reason. I’m knitting it in Hemp for Knitting by Lanaknits in fingering weight. The color is called 012 Classic, which is gray.

The yarn is kind of stiff at first so I put it into hanks, then washed it by hand and hung to dry. This color looks green when it’s wet. I was using double point needles, but the stitches kept falling off and driving me nuts. At one point, I was putting stitches back on that had fallen off one side of the cap and more fell off the other side at the same time! So, yeah… a circular needle was definitely in order. I got to buy my second set of Addi’s as that was all the store had.
