Some more knitting stuff on the blog : my Meringue hat is done ♥
As I said before, Christmas has already started for me, and thus my next articles for the “knitting” category will mostly be about Christmas gifts I am making.
I used the remaining yarn from my 3 Color Cashmere Cowl, finished recently : the Malabrigo yarn sock, colorway Velvet Grapes.
I tried a new technic to cast on, the « tubular cast-on » method, which gives you a very stretchy edging (video I watched to help me).
Thanks to this project, I could be part of a KAL called KALnouveau, opened by Moïra from the French podcast Les aiguilles du nord, which I advise you to watch if you’re comfortable with French talking
About Meringue, it is a very fast knitting project, except for the ribbing part at the beginning : 2 inches of ribs 1×1 with 2.5 mm needles well… it is so long !!
But once this “difficulty” overtaken, the lace pattern grows fast (I think it is my project the fastest finished!).
For the blocking part, I used a balloon ! I saw that tip on Thread&Needles, a French website : it is very useful, cheap, and it makes the lace patterns revealed.
And there it is : a grape Meringue ready for Christmas
