WIP Wednesday

Fair Isle Tam in Patons Classic Wool
I've been knitting steadily along on my Tam which looks nothing like a tam.
Generally when I knit hats they come out far too large and so I took preemptive action and brought the needle size down from a 7 to a 4 for this hat. When I block it, the wool should grow just enough so that it it is a regular-size hat. But if not, I have nieces of all sizes and there's this thing called Christmas where you can unload your failure knit goods onto the world.

In other news I was all excited because I finished something! I was like "YES! I can post this on my blog because it's been SOOOO long since I finished anything!"
You know what it was?

Joining up with Tamis Amis today.
Happy knitting!

P.S. My shawl is growing slowly but steadily; I knit on it only at lunchtime at work.

Oh hey I found a close-up!


  1. Holy crap you go down so many needle sizes! I usually knit them too small and have to go up one or two needle sizes, but then again I haven't attempted one in colorwork yet, I generally knit loose with colorwork. Socks look lovely, I'm still too afraid to make some, meh.

  2. Both your Tam and your sock are fabulous!! Your knitting mojo is in full swing. ; )

  3. Your tam is gorgeous! I love the color combination.

  4. love the pattern in the sock, not that I am a sock knitter. and great hat also!
