Lacy Cable Hat

DSC_1141 (2)A couple days ago, I knitted up another one of these cable-lace hat because cables and lace are my favorite things whether on hats, scarves, legwarmers, cowls, you name it and I’ll love it.

I made up the pattern, and I’ve already started on a modified version of this, but sadly (to every knitters’ horror), I ran out of yarn [insert gasp here]. I even contemplated ripping apart the hat I have now, so I can finish it, but I have a hard time destroying anything I make, so I’m placing it on hold.

The thing is, I’m not going to be able to run to the store until this weekend, so I’m partly devastated that I won’t be finishing my new favorite project anytime soon. If you can’t tell, I’ve been in a knitting frenzy lately, so this isn’t helping me very much. (Now would be a good time to focus on my schoolwork, right? Yeah … that…)

The new version will likely make a debut on Etsy (once I finish it), but for now you can simply sit back and feast your eyes on this one.DSC_1149 (2)

I made it using Lion Brand Wool-Ease yarn. The color was “Mushroom.” I really don’t know how they (or anyone else for the matter) comes up with names for these colors. It makes it really hard for me to describe the color (though pictures should suffice), but still… Does anyone else have a problem with trying to describe colors? For some reason, it’s something that’s been troubling me for a while now.
