Well, my blog has been rather neglected lately and "yarn along" posts only, were becoming rather repetitive, both for me to write and I'm sure for you to read. So I am a little anxious about posting on a similar theme but I have a reason for another yarn-related post.
I have finished my Norwegian Fairisle Snowflake Hat!
I used Rico Essentials Merino DK which is a lovely soft wool.
(oops - sorry this photo is a bit out of focus)
And here is a view of the top.
And I am actually quite pleased with this, despite the slight rucks in places where I have pulled the wool a little too tight at the back.
For those who are interested, the pattern is on Ravelry as a free download and can be found here.
This hat fits nice and snuggly on my head. All the other woollen shop-bought hats I own are a bit on the large side and so ride up with wear and end up sitting proud on my head - I don't like that look at all, and neither do the younger members of the family. So no more "sitting high" hats for me!
And now I'm ready for those cold winter days spent watching football matches or cross country races.
It feels so good to finish a project at last - it might be some time before I finish the next one!
