This is a quick knit I’m letting fly on the needles before Jeff leaves to Cusco to romp the Inca Trail with his son & daughter in only a matter of days. It is something he actually asked me to make, which is in itself a first! It is a cover for his Kindle. Awww. So, in the middle of frantic manic knitting of chullos, and trying to reach a personal deadline, I am just thinking of it as a one-eared version of just another chullo hat.
The days continue to be gloriously cool, and today fog is rolling over the ridge and cascading down the mountain misting over everything & evoking creativity with sometimes an internal unsettled agitation. I think I will take this Inca thing, my knitting bag, and go for a good knit-walk up the ridge with Emma. We’ll be back in no time and maybe I’ll have a finished Kindle cover to post!
Edit in: I walked & finished knitting,
then felted the kindle cover and here it is…
Pattern: (adapted from forthcoming chulo pattern)
Yarn: Lambs Pride worsted weight in dark & light grey (excellent for felting!
