the madness continues

El Capitan
Originally uploaded by my_weezy
March is coming to an end soon and I only could manage one project in malabrigo. Capitan by Rosi Garmendia. I am not even done with it yet. There are some changes to the pattern that I did. One, I am using worsted weight yarn instead. I was told it would work, but, unfortunately, not for my big head. :) This will be going to my niece. Two, the cables. They are different. I didn't do this on purpose. I messed up. I liked it though and left them.

I am almost done. Just need to finish the front band and sew up the brim. Then I will need to find some cute buttons. I have a whole box of buttons at school for the kids to sort. I bet I could find a couple silver ones that will work perfectly.

So, I made it to Gauge today. You know what that means. Yarn! Two lovely skeins of Malabrigo. One of which will make it into the hands of one lucky person. The winner will get to choose one of these lovely yarns:

Lace in vetiver, 470 yards
Malabrigo Lace

Worsted in dusty olive, 216 yards
Dusty Olive

Contest ends tomorrow. You have until midnight my time (CST).

Good luck!
Go here and enter. (Sorry for the confusion.)


  1. Do I just comment to enter??? Because if that's the case I'm in and you're awesome. I love the hat! *goes to put in in Ravelry queue*

  2. I guess all I need to do is comment, since you didn't mention anything that case, count me in!

  3. coveting your Malabrigo. Wishing it were my Malabrigo....;)

  4. I love those new yarns, especially the green/salmon one. Cute hat as well. I was just looking at some like that at the ski shop the other day!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
