Or, a happy yarn from Ella Rae.
See, yesterday sent me on a stash dive, into the stuff I don’t have logged on Ravelry because it’s most likely to be used for charitable or dog knitting. I grabbed a variegated ball of Amity, a 75% acrylic, 25% wool blend, and cast on for the hat I promised Amy I’d hand over when we meet later this week. I think I’ve donated 2 of the 3 years she’s been doing Warm Up Winchester.
Amity is a bit fuzzy, but it’s so soft to the hand and it wears like steel. This I know, because my babyman – Mugsy – had a snuggle made from it, and it was washed and tossed in the dryer a couple of times a month for about a year. He didn’t go anywhere without it. It was his seat cover at home, work and especially in the car. I think I’ve found the yarn to use for baby #3’s blanket.
Doesn’t hurt that I like the word either.
What’s your favorite winter hat pattern? I confess, I don’t have one. I love to knit hats, but I don’t believe I’ve done the same pattern twice. I’ll have an FO report for you on Friday. I probably would have had one today for the hat, but I NEEDED Mexican for dinner last night!
