This might be the only thing I own that's even remotely blue. I'm not a blue person, but I've kind of got a yen for it all the sudden. It's that damn BSA skinny cotton that started it - have you seen the mallard colorway? I love it. This hat - it's ingeniously made. It's all short rows and nearly all K2P2, but the staggering of the rib makes a fantastic pattern and after one little seam up the back, it all comes together. I kind of think it looks like one of those old timey bathing caps! and that pleases me :)
Crap, now I have no excuse but to keep working on the Tree Jacket. ooooor, I could cast on again for the Bird in Hands, right? Did I mention that I cast on for those, but decided that my yellow and white color scheme just didn't contrast enough? Dharma gifted me a ball of Valley Yarns Amherst in a great squash orange color because she thought it seemed like a "me" kind of color - and I love it! I so wanted to use it for my mittens, but it's not enough yardage. It IS however, probably plenty for a hat! 'cause that's what I need - another hat! need-schmeed! who really needs anything? I love making hats!
