I had so much fun with the first that I made a second Ida's Kitchen. This time I used Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light which has a most spectacular selection of colors. Ah those heathered shades, how they woo me.
I purchased 9 hanks of Ultra Alpaca Light for this project from Webs because I just couldn't choose. After discussions with the resident slouch wearers we came up with this combo:
A=Pea Soup Mix #4275
B=Winter White #4201
C=Turquoise Mix #4294
E=Candied Yam Mix #4268
F=Dark Chocolate #4205
G=Blue Glasynys #4213
I could make 20 of these hats and never repeat a color combo because there are some many fabulous yarn choices out there. Check out the Ida's Kitchen projects on Ravelry to see some fun versions. I'd love to see one in handspun. Hmmm. Must search stash.
My girls (and TTL's models) turned 17 today (technically at 12:56 & 12:58 last night). Here in NJ that means drivers licenses. For me, this is by far the most worrisome part of parenting. However a lovely snow storm has given me a reprieve. The tests will be postponed until a later date.
So who's going to Vogue Knitting Live? I'll be there all weekend. I'm taking a class with Cat Bordhi, plan to spend lots of time drooling over the goodies in the marketplace and will also spend some time with my friends from Down Cellar at their booth (1502, 1601 & 1603). You can find me at the Down Cellar booth on Saturday from 11-12 and on Sunday from 12-1. Stop by and say "hi".
