Squishy and Slouchy
That's the way my girls seem to like their hats these days. In a fit of "I-need-some-instant-gratification-knitting" last week I made two new hats. They are both based on the same stitch pattern with a few changes from one to the other.
The first one is made with Farmhouse Yarns, Andy's Merino II. It is a lovely, squishy, delicious yarn that comes in a wide range of equally appealing colors.Knit Picks Gloss HW. This is a really nice Merino/Silk at a very good price. You can't really see it in these photos, but the yarn has a lovely luster from the silk.
Now for the fun part - digging through the stash for a yarn to knit the third hat with. I always discover something I'd forgotten I had when I do that.
The kids have a day off from school today, so the "Lad" and I will continue our quest to find the perfect college for him. Although we think we may have found it on our outing on Friday, it doesn't hurt to see a few more. (Is it me or are colleges much nicer than they were back in the dark ages when I went to school?)
So, who's going to Rhinebeck this year? I'll be there on Sunday. If you see me, say "hi".
