A quickie

I did indeed get a chemo cap done over the weekend, and I've been a blogging slacker and haven't posted it until now...

Chemo cap


And because my favorite part of a hat is the decreases on the top...
Hat decreases

Pattern: my own
Yarn: TLC Cotton Plus, less than one skein
Needles: Two size 7 circulars (knit in the round on 2 circs)

The bottom picture is the closest to the actual color. Considering a) how quickly this went and b) how much Cotton Plus I have in my stash, there will probably be others along the way.

I have started the lace section for sleeve #2 of my SKB. That section took a little while on sleeve 1; something on size 2s isn't going to go that quickly to begin with, and I find that I have to stop periodically because my hands cramp up with needles this small. The good news is that, after that, it's just straight stockinette on size 7s with a few increases here and there, and an inch of seed stitch at the cuff. :)

What is that stitch you used? It kind of looks like it's a kf/b but you k2tog or something? I love it!

That's lovely, the stitch pattern is really effective.
