My First Tam

I borrowed Knitted Tams from the library a couple weeks ago. Great book by the way. And I have been itching to make one since I picked it up. What a relaxing, yet fast knit! I cast on Thursday night and it is blocking right now!


Tam Blocking

Yarn: KnitPicks Palette, Wood
Needles: Addi Turbo 2.5mm and 3.25mm
Pattern: Basic Tam Pattern from Knitted Tams by Mary Rowe
Blocking on a 13inch plate

I followed the pattern, except for one thing. I know the pattern says to block on a 10 inch plate, but I wanted it a little larger. I'll see how this works out. It looked really, really small before the blocking phase. I am talking toddler small, really. Now, I think it may fit an adult. I have already started another one, but on a bigger needle. I am going to try size 3 for the ribbing and a size 5 for the body.

Almost forgot to mention...
Last Monday, June 18th was a special day for two reasons:
It was my DD birthday! 20 years old, WOW!
And it was my one year anniversary of quitting smoking!
I am so happy about that!
