I need to let you in on a little secret. This project began a love affair. I am now desperately in love with Tami's Candy Skein yarn and am going to have problems going back to other yarns. But thankfully, my next few projects will be made with various bases from her yarn company - tempting sock as witness in Wednesday's post and her newest base Sweet Fingering which will become my Color Affection Shawl..
I am so pleased with how this project turned out :D
I ended with 37 teeth including the last one formed by the bind off (I went with the less pointy version). In retrospect, I probably could have eked out another two - but I am an awful judge of how much yarn I'm using. Maybe one day I will invest in a scale. Even with seeing other Hitchhikers with less teeth then mine, I was concerned it wasn't big enough but I shouldn't have worried.

I love how the yarn pooled - mostly it was just stripes but there were one or two "glob" sections which I enjoy.
Overall I am very pleased. This yarn has cheered up my winter blues and even though it's more of a spring
