Some of you long time readers may remember when my nephew came to live with us a few years ago. We had him for a short period of time to help him get caught up in school. He later went on to live permanently with my parents who have done a wonderful job raising him. He’s not a little guy any longer but now towers over me at 6’2″.
I had promised a hat to him so while I was visiting I knit Kristen Kapur’s THORPE hat. It went very quickly with bulky weight yarn. I was a little surprised that he liked the kind with the braids hanging down but he thought it very cool. His friends thought it pretty cool too and said it looked like a ‘store bought’ hat. Is that a complement?
This was such a quick knit that I think I need one myself. Do any of you have a favorite bulky weight yarn? This was my first experience with this weight and I would love some suggestions!
