Tried to make a pompom but didn’t pull tight enough, and tbqh didn’t have enough of the blue. But a soft and comfy hat nonetheless.

review:
It’s like all the Western movies I watched with mom when I was a kid, but post-apocalyptic(ish) and fiercely queer. Also a very fast read, which honestly is kind of nice, I finished it in a single sitting.

Pincha shawl

This project was much more enjoyable than I expected, although it was not at ALL a project I could travel with. Instead it was good for sitting and listening to a podcast or watching a movie. After about the first 3 or 4 repeats I even figured out the rhythm so I didn’t have to look up the pattern, though I did have to count every single row.

Total number of feathers: 21, with probably not quite enough yarn for a 22nd.

Turns out, I missed an entire repeat of the pattern (on the wrist end) and did the palm in 1×1 ribbing instead of stockinette. Still think they’ll be ok tho.

Brioche for Beginners

(also using a mystery rainbow fingering-weight yarn)

I kinda messed up the last stitch of the round for a couple of inches, ended up with a double-column of what looks like the knit stitch of the brioche ribbing.

But I do appreciate the simplicity and clarity of explanation on this pattern — it’s been a few years, and this time I did NOT struggle with brioche stitch!
