FO - Hemp Wallet

purlyman's picture

So a coworker saw one of my sweaters and asked "Hey, can you knit a wallet?" I found Michael del Vecchio's pattern, got some hemp yarn and great advice at my LYS (Denver's Fancy Tiger), and made one. I didn't follow the directions to the letter, but it was a great guide. I knitted on size 5 needles and the help is extremely strong knitted in linen stitch. Not sure I'd want to do another one though.

Isn't hemp really hard to knit -- I have always found it stiffish??

The World's a blast. Ka-Whoosh, Ka-Whish. With healthy soul and belly. And all the skies are full of fish, and all the fish are smelly!

Extremeley... worse than cotton. But for this project it really was pretty great.
