But, you know me, any excuse to knit a hat so I made Fjord, using three quarters of a skein of Punta Yarns Mericash Thousand Colours in a good 'manly' bluey/greeny/brown colour.
Despite being pleased to cover up the hair (which is fine, by the way, in my opinion), my lovely boy wasn't quite so keen to model my efforts but I think you can get the gist of Fjord. It's a lovely pattern, extremely straightforward and quick to do as well, just a knit/purl combination all the way. A perfect rescue remedy! More information over here on Ravelry.
I don't know about where you are but the weather here has been pretty foul these last few days .. definitely not dry enough to entice me outside any more than is necessary, that's for sure. Despite the fact I am currently working on a little something for the Spring, I can't help but dream of hats right now. and have just made a bit of a detour with yet another on the needles. I'm thinking I must have one for our Spring Break holiday, which we are all so excited about. Doubtless there'll be others to follow for I've discovered that hat making is a quick and satisfying fix like no other. Can there really ever be too many hats in one's wardrobe, I wonder? I think we all know the answer to that ..
