I have been wanting a hat, as all the hats I have ever made I have given away. I got this yarn in SLC at a little yarn shop on our 6th wedding anniversary last year.
I know that you are suppose to have something in mind when you buy yarn so you can get the right amount, choose the yarn according to gauge, color, fiber and what have you, but I rarely buy yarn that way. Mostly I just needed this yarn because of the color and the fun wooly texture.
So here is a test swatch, whenever I make one of these I feel so responsible. I hate making them though, they just get in the way of the project. I say this even though I know without them I will end up with a thneed.
So this hat is a combination of one that I saw a picture of forever ago and my own design. I'm not sure it will turn out exactly like I have envisioned it, however I am ever so hopeful. I will let you know.
