after writing it i just realized it's a total tongue twister for me, i couldn't pronounce it to save my life! it probably doesn't help trying to pronounce it with my german accent: "with shell stitch, with shell stitch, with shell stitch" – come on, say it faster! :)
last week i finished a hat that i ended up using for myself. it came in handy since i got a cold and could use something to keep me warm. after wearing it for a few days it got a lot bigger, i hope it'll get tighter again after washing. not sure what to if it doesn't shrink back. any ideas? do i need to make it smaller in the first place? (this actually is the toddler size... yeah, i know, it's a bit strange.)
i was also trying to take photos of the finished hat lying on the table, but apparently tybee misunderstood the photo shoot to be about her... the cuteness clearly got to her head :)
joining ginny again this week for yarn along. what are you knitting and reading?
