You Know How People Always Complain About Stockinette?

Well, they obviously haven't tried it using Rowan's All Season's Cotton. Yowza! This stuff is a *treat* to work with. It comes out so soft and perfect. And I can watch TV at the same time--without looking at my hands--because it's an easy stitch. :)

The pattern in the Stitch 'n Bitch book (Official Kittyville Hat) called for 3 skeins of Mission Falls Wool. When I transitioned to the cotton, I also bought 3 skeins of the Rowan.

I can't for the life of me see how I will need 3 full skeins. I'd honestly be surprised to use more than 2. I'm working the decrease rows now, and I'm down to a couple of yards of the first skein. So I'll switch to skein #2 to finish the decreases and add the kitty parts, but I think I'm going to have a significant amount left over. YAY! A beanie for me out of the goshdarndest softest cotton I've ever run across. Love it!

  • Have you tried the Stich and Bitch knit group in Costa Mesa? They meet twice a month. also there is a small group of us that meet in Aliso Viejo every Tuesday evening𮀍. You could also post on for any knitters in the area. There is also La Petite Knittery in Mission Viejo that is very friendly.

    Let me know what you find!
