My quilt store got some new batiks in - can't you tell? They are gorgeous! Then I dropped by the yarn store next door - I had a purpose - I had no DK weight yarn to knit a hat for the Hat Club. We are trying to knit a hat each month - except that this is the first time I have participated.
Although the top yarn - this gorgeous silk stuff is not for the hat - nope - not even. It jumped in my basket. Honest! But this Kathmandu is for a hat - with those lovely beads in it. I have never knit with beads - and I'm going to learn how. The beads actually match all the colors in the yarn... Then because my coat is actually shades of purple - I wanted a purple beaded hat - so those are the beads and that is the yarn...so, I had fun being creative and picking out great beads and yarns for something for myself!
Edited to add: The pattern is called Odessa Hat and I don't have a photo. The pattern is available for free at Ravelry.
No, yarn shop in Claremont. The one I went to today is in White River Junction - where a group of us get together - via Ravelry and in person as time permits - and work on projects. We established a Hat Club last year...and since I only own ONE hand knit hat - I'm getting some knit...
