Ida the Second

Ida the Second 3

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
D=Buckwheat #4204
E=Candied Yam Mix #4268
F=Dark Chocolate #4205
G=Blue Glasynys #4213

Ida the Second 2

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.

Ida the Second
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".

hey, happy birthday to your girls! I hope they have a great birthday!! My twin cousins were also born just after midnight! At 12:05am and 12:14am. I always remark that it would've been funny if they had ended up being born on different days :)

So the missing suitcase turned up with the hat? I love this color combo also.

Happy Birthday to your girls! 17, wow! In MA, it was 16 1/2 in my days. I was so excited back then, but now I see why my parents worried. Parenthood does make me see things differently. :-)

Love this hat. I swore I was done with accessory knitting for a whiole but this is going to break my resolve quickly.
Happy bday to your girls!

You will really enjoy Cat's class. I was at her Retreat in October and we did not stop laughing. She is a kind and patient teacher.

Once my knitting time frees up I'll be making this, its just beautiful! I could imagine it can possibly be a good stash buster.

Happy birthday to the coolest models on any blog!

Love this hat -- I'm going to try one in a tweedy combination! And happy birthday wishes (late though they be) to your lovely daughters.

I will be ordering the yarn for this hat on Wednesday. Happy birthday to your girls.

Oh man I can FEEL the alpaca softness from here! Version #2 is fantastic. I, too, and terrified about teen driving. What scares me most is them riding with other people:(

Absolutely love the colors and it looks so soft! Great version of this amazing pattern.

oh! i am so sorry i am so late in wishing your girls a happy birthday!!!
happy birthday!!!

love the ida hat SO SO much!
