One Finished, One Almost


Here is my finished hat! It took less than one 100g ball of my hand dyed wool.


This hat is the same pattern with the snowflake design added. I needed a smaller hat so I just went down a needle size. It just needs one more ear flap and the icord strings. This will be a birthday gift...for NEXT month. For once I am ahead of schedule (insert a little happy dance here :D)

Next on the needles is a matching stranded cowl.

Very nice! The little shifts of colour in your hand-dyed wool are a nice touch. You must be very pleased!

Ahead of schedule... that the holy grail of gift knitting isn't it? Love the snowflake pattern.
