A chance of flurries at midnight....


Not really, but that's what this reminds me of. It's Woolbearer's Ringspun, color Midnight Iris (the colors are so right, it could have been made to order for me) and Cream Elann Pamir. This one is built on the order of Le Slouch, and was, incredibly, too big for me. Into the dryer it went. Much better.

I have enough to do one more hat in these two yarns (I started with a skein of each), and plan to work on pattern distribution a little. This hat's designs are predominately on the back, and I need to even that up a little to make it look more balanced. So I'll cast on in the morning (in a smaller size), and add a few stripes and widgets, so the pattern is not a wonking huge surprise on the back.
For Joan's benefit-I christen this one Je Tam.

Ooooh, I like this one more than the last one. I think it's because these are colors I'm more likely to wear myself. :-)

Girl, you are on a roll!!!

Thank you. I love this yarn. I've been hoarding this yarn for myself. When I finish the second hat, I'll pick the one I like the best, and keep it! The last one was for my DGD, who is two years older than your DD.

Bets,
It is lovely. I want to see one modeled on a live head! Your head! Is it the Le Slouch pattern or your own?
Beautiful,

ROFL on the Je Tam! Only wish I could see it. Blogger isn't loading the pic for me now but I will check back later for sure.

This one is made using the tam instructions in IWK. I used the dimensions for Le Slouch (it's the same hat, but deeper.)
