Boy has it turned cold! And it was super windy yesterday; I was out riding my bike and it was not fun riding into the wind! It's supposed to be cold but not so much wind today.
I finally got the Fair Isle hat finished. I unravelled it once and redid it using a different yarn for the pattern. The ribbing looks ruffled but I think that's because the grey yarn I used was a bit thicker than the blue and because Fair Isle knitting just ends up a bit tighter. It's a little too small for me. If I make it again I'm going to use yarn that's all the same and a needle that's a bit bigger for the body of the hat. I used a size 6 this time. Next time I'll use a 6 circular for the ribbing and a 7 or 8 for the rest of the hat.
I also finished a scarf which I'm not posting pics of because it's a gift. And Sio brought me two more balls of the Classic Worsted Tapestry yarn from the yarn store in Dekalb. I'm not sure what I'm going to make yet; maybe some arm warmers or mittens.
