snow is in the forecast. SNOW! i love snow. i live in the south. snow will always be an under appreciated novelty. but me, ... i love knitting and wool, and snow !
with snow, comes the opportunity to wear all the knitties. i won't dare pile up too many knits. and, if it does snow, i won't wear this (maybe).
it's a bit "airy" with the lace. and it's not all wool (hello caron's country 75% acrylic 25% merino). but, it's cute !
i found this pattern on and then had to go out and buy the magazine (before it disappears from the newsstands!). i didn't have anything readily available in stash, so i hit the local craft store for some cheap thrills.
this cheap was very rewarding. though the yarn is splitty, it is quite pretty and has a wonderful color palette. i don't know how it will hold up, pill, or otherwise wash. time will tell, as will i .....
yarn - caron's country in shade peacock.
needles - US 4 for twisted rib, US 6 (4mm) for rest of hat.
pattern - Vogue Knitting Holiday 2008, bobbled tam (#31), size M/L.
would i use this yarn again? i don't know ... depends on how the hat wears ....
