The Results

First the finish: 

Katherine had sent me some AMAZING by Lion Brand.
Amazing it is.  It is no where near the price of Noro but it's colors blend just as beautifully. 
Cobblestone is the colorway. 
The hat belongs to Zach. 
A simple 72 stitch hat.  
Thank you Katherine for a great knit up.
I have another skein yet to enjoy. 
 Thank you all for your Vest thoughts.   I've made a decision..  I'm casting on for a Vest.  I am not using Karen's pattern choice.  I'm using a pattern by a designer whose instructions always make sense to me.  

So I'm stepping out of my comfort zone, but not so much so that I'm not looking forward to the knitting.  

Happy Sunday.  Happy End of July.  Happy shis -ka -bob because that's what we are having tonight with cousins.

The hat is beautiful, yet masculine! I'm so glad you enjoyed the Amazing. I prefer it to Noro's scratchy texture!

Looking forward to your vest.
Your sunflowers are gorgeous. Shis-ka-bob sounds delish!
Happy weekend!!

Very nice hat. Happy Sunday! I hope you enjoy your yummy dinner.

I've never minded Lion Brand, probably because of my love of lions. I'll definitely have to look into Amazing.

Enjoyed your happy report, Kathy :) I hope your vest turns out as beautifully as the hat in this post, and also that you have a good dinner tonight. I am planning on making good progress today on the shawl that I have been crocheting.......for months.......

Love the hat and will look for the yarn.

Glad to hear you are going to knit a vest - a challenge is always good for the soul.

The new vest pattern sounds like the perfect compromise.

Love Zach's hat. Such pretty colors.

I love Amazing. That reminds me that I have some around here that needs to be a sweater soon.

I'm "amazed" that this yarn looks so much like NORO. Nice!

Glad to hear you're going for a challenge project in knitting. Good for you!
