One of my better friends from England sent me a WHOLE POUND CONE! of sockweight wool!!!
Of course, this being a hat, it's definately doubled up...
...and well, as quoted from "The Birdcage"
"...one does want a HINT of colour."
So, I just had to use some of the yarn that my local shop just called "Special" when it was on clearance just to get rid of it all.
I just love it! ...and also, the wool is SO awesome to work with. I'm currently on another hat right now with that same wool and also that "Special" -- did a Norwegian pattern (just the regular standard star shape that you see on Scandinavian patterns) and on the reverse I'm going to do a bit of a sampler in a Fair Isle style. I'll post the pic when I get it done.
