For the times my pompom maker cannot make them to the size I want. ♡

…Because I *have* been awfully remiss lately in posting updates. (And posted this to the wrong tumblr; again.)
Mostly stress knitting, hence the moss/seed stitches only.
…At the rate I’m going, this quilt is going to be something like 80% seed/moss and 20% miscellaneous.
Oh, say it won’t be so!

Depending on how you look at it… this is either watermelon, or strawberry. xDDD
Haha, it’s a coincidence! I’ve been sort of mixing my colours in a lucky-dip kinda way, so…

After yet some more procrastination (heh, >_>;) here’s the Vivien floppy beanie redux!
It seems the correct circumference this time, but feels still kinda clunky? Chunky? Might just have the pattern go to 16cm instead of 18cm? Or knit the rib a bit longer… I mean, when I squish it flat, I do get a circle. Except that the edges curl up a little?

? too long, 2x Moda Vera “Stallion” in purple, 72st cast on, 5rows rib, 9x4rows patt, 8rows crown, 5&6mm double pointed needles.

After much procrastination… tah-dah! A Vivien floppy beanie! 
Turned out to be too big (64cm -.-;) but it’s pretty much just a test run anyway. 
This is what I get for using a non-recommended wool… (I didn’t care for the colours) but I don’t feel like collecting and collating data on yarn thicknesses v needle size, to find the mathematical formulae needed, to be able to knit any pattern using x-yarn thickness y-needle diameter. (‘Cos that zaps the fun out of my *leisure* time…) ‘Course if you know of such a formula/graph/reference, could you point it my way??
TL;DR - …Trial and error ftw!

MOAR WEAVING. This is the largest loom configuration (40x40) and HOMG it took ages to weave this! Maybe this’ll form part of a throw…? 

The good news though is that the size of the resultant weave is about the size of my four of my regularly knitted patchwork/sample squares. Decisions, decisions…ooh.
