Hitchhiker progress 


It’s not perfect. I’ve had to stop myself several times from ripping it out and rewinding the yarn, but I’m sticking with it. I’ve swapped to 4mm instead of 3mm circulars, so started again once already, because the gauge was tiny. A scarf for a doll! 

The wool is so fine, being Rowan Fine Art sock yarn, that it slips off my shiny metal Nova knit-pro needles often so the tension is a little wiggy in places; but as I said I am resisting my perfectionist tendencies and leaving it be. 

I love the colours, this is expensive but very lovely yarn (merino wool, kid mohair, polyamide and mulberry silk.)

  1. I love the color and the pattern and you’re going to adore wearing that! I found a mistake in my summer shawl and would have had to take out two long rows.. so I just fudged it.. and you know what? No one will ever see it! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. It is looking really good! And you are making me feel guilty – I haven’t worked on mine in a while – I think I have 4 “teeth” done and that is it!! Need to get cracking!
