I think I may have stumbled into a sort of color slump:
Not really a slump though because I've been enjoying every minute of it. At the bottom is the Shalom cardigan, waiting for a button, and then the February sweater for my cousin due in January (modified with short sleeves).
But you know, something still should be done and the only solution is to kick the slump with a vengeance:
It's a simple striped beanie. I'm on a hat kick because Christmas season is bearing down upon us and this year I'm not going home so I have to send warm woolly greetings from abroad.
The red and dark red beanie above (which is Turn a Square by Jared Flood) tries to avoid jogging by knitting the stitch below when changing colors. But I learned that for some reason I'm not so good with that method. I must be doing something wrong because the joins are even more noticeable.
Anyway, for the green/yellow stripey stripe I'm following Grumperina's advice regarding how to avoid jogs by taking advantage of the helical nature of knitting. At this point I'm not quite sure what to do when it comes to decreasing but I think I'll top with with the dark green.
Hope it doesn't look like a sock.
