I seem to have a bit of a hat thing going on…
This my Star Crossed Slouchy Beret (pattern free on ravelry). Yes, I succumbed to the pressure of the numerous ravelry projects (6591 and counting!!) – I thought all those knitters must know a good pattern when they knit it! Turns out they (the knitters) totally do – I love it. The pattern is simple (clearly written), but very satisfying. I also thought it was a great project for handspun yarn.
I used three different skeins (medium blue, light blue and blue/brown) of Yummy Yarn – specifically her handspun “soft spun” which is cushy and soft – I am a true fan of this local dyer/spinner.
