An experiment.

I’ve been wanting to knit a Thorpe (Rav link) and I’ve been wanting to knit with my handspun, and so the other day, I tried putting the two together.

The first stumbling block was not having the proper needles, which I solved by pulling out some square Kollage needles (which are, in case you’ve been wondering, fabulous) and figuring out how to magic loop.  Much like cables, once I saw how simple magic looping really was, I felt silly for not trying it sooner.

I’ve been knitting for a bit now, and I think I’ve come to the conclusion that I am no longer knitting a Thorpe and the hat is destined to be Something Else.  What I don’t know is what they will be.  Stay tuned.
