Tweedy hat and scarf

Back to knitting! This week I finished the scarf for my husband and made a hat too, while watching a lot of good movies and Poirot mysteries. The Sisik yarn is beautiful and warm, a tweedy mix of mohair, wool and a small amount of acrylic and rayon. I might have to make a simple hat like this for myself, too!

Yarn: Dale Sisik, 5 skeins, from Kris.
Needles: 3.5 mm
Pattern: Trial and Error
Sisik: Here is a picture of a sisik for which the yarn is named.

We are having really bad lighting today, I should maybe take new pictures tomorrow...

Pippi is wondering when we can get rid of this pesky tree which is keeping her from her corner. She likes to hide there.

I wish everyone a fabulous new year. Don't make too many new years resolutions!


  1. I thought I recognised that sisik! A lovely pair of warm accessories you have produced as well. That trial and error pattern sure worked out well in the end!
    My dog's best little canine friend is a whippet called Pantoufle, who shares a similar attitude as Pippi to his special lambskin rug he likes to lie on (which my dog always co-opts whenever we're visiting)!

  2. This set looks absolutely stunning - simple but yet so elegant and unique. Perfect - and I adore the colour!
    My gosh, Pippi looks *so* cute in that pic - hope she'll get "her" corner back very soon!
    Have a very happy, healthy and safe New Year - it was so wonderful "meeting" you this year, reading your amazing entries and your lovely e-mails - I'm looking forward to many, many more!
    Have a great one, my friend!

  3. Aww, poor Pippi! Hope she got some presents but I guess that doesn't make up for losing her space.

    The hat and scarf set is lovely. Gorgeous colour!

    Wishing you and yours a Happy New Year.

  4. what a soft, warm, and comfy set! i love it!

    poor pippi, does she not appreciate the beauty of the tree? ;-)

  5. I was wondering about this Sisik yarn ... there is this lovely halo with it ... so it turns out there is mohair! My favourite fibre! Lovely set of winter accessories.
    If Pippi lives in my house, she would be really unhappy because we didn't put the christmas tree away until it's really not the season! hahaha ... the present record was 2 years ago ... it stayed until June!
    Happy New Year.

  6. Beautiful hat and scarf! I love the photo of the bird, quite the little stunner.
    A Happy New Year to you, looking forward to the delights you share with us!
    Thanks for stopping by, it's always nice to see you've been by.
    Happy Knitting!

  7. Lovely hat! I love that Sisik, it's too sad they discontinued it... Little Knits still has 3 colours left, if only they had the eggplant colour... And Pippi looking quite put out by the tree... she's so cute... Have a very very happy new year, and then, onward to Poetry!

  8. Great sharf and hat - and what a beautiful name for the yarn.

  9. What a lovely blog..I think "Poetry in Stitches" is the most beautiful book and that chandelier is fabulous.We watch Poirotjust for the costumes .

  10. Aaw. I love birds! Great winter set!
