I blended these two sock yarns and made myself a new hat.
It goes perfectly with my new winter jacket.
I have been very careful about buying a new winter jacket.
I wanted to wait for the clearance sales.
I ended up looking at Eddie Bauer, L L Bean and the over the top expensive North Face.
30% off plus 30 dollars off was the winning jacket at Eddie Bauer.
It is the lightest green color similar to the tonal green in the photo above.
They call it their sweater.
It is so light it doesn't feel like you have a jacket on.
I love it.
It is reversible and machine washable.
I hope it lasts me a good long time.
So now I have a hand knit hat that is a great companion to the jacket.
I cast on about 110 stitches using both yarns. (on size 3 needles)
Ribbed an inch or so. (went up to a size 5 needle)
Knit the body and did a square top to a round hat finish.
We have so many cardinals in our yard this March.
There are females and males and they all are in a flock.
I hope they nest in the evergreens next to the house per usual.
I tried putting out dried mealworms yesterday as I Couldn't find the safflower mix at the pet shop.
I hope they like the change up!
Going out for a walk now without a jacket
It is crazy warm for us this week.
Its already in the 60s.
Oh we may just get a real Spring!!!
What are you knitting?
