I've only got one large skein of the tweed yarn. And I'm not sure if there is enough. Wouldn't it look silly if I had to switch yarns at the top of the ski mask? I can just imagine him rejecting it 'cause it didn't match on top. So I converted the pattern to knit from top down. I started on Monday and have knitted enough to cover his short hair. He tried it on and it fits.
It's turning out very nicely. He did make a comment that ithe yarn has flecks of red. But then again it has a rainbow of flecks so it still meets with his approval. Whew.
Over the weekend I tried to run this heavy worsted yarn on my knitting machine. But it popped out of the standard gauge knitting machine. Which is not meant to use such thick yarns. Oh well.
