Do you remember it? I actually started this lovely project just before I got really sick. And I knew it was meant to be a hitchhiker. Especially after I cast on. lol!
Anyways, talk about another addictive knit!! Even though Wollmeise offers such massive skeins, (like are talking 574 yards here!) this project knit up pretty quickly.... I love that I never had an overwhelming amount of stitches on the needles, even though it produced a fairly large shawl!
I am seriously in love!
I do have a confession to make though..... this is actually the VERY first time I've knit with Wollmeise, AND this is my first time knitting a Martina Behm pattern!!!
Say what!!??!! She's actually been at the top of my ravelry queue for years, and many of her patterns are in my favorites... I really can't believe it's taken me this long to dive in! But I'm sure glad I did.
I definitely love that the hitchhiker works so well with hand dyed variegated yarns.
Here are the little details:
Yarn: Wollmeise We're different Pure. Colorway Libelle (I think!! the sticker was covering it up, so if I'm wrong, please let me know.)
Needles: signatures (fixed) 3.25mm (sadly, the fixed are no longer made..)
Pattern: Hitchhiker by Martina Behm.
I absolutely LOVED knitting this! I definitely recommend both the designer and the yarn to anyone.
I realize I'm on a shawl kick... and I really don't see it stopping anytime soon ;) so tell me, what's on your needles?!
