Day 29 of #blogjune
A little while back KnittingSarah hosted a competition in the Merry Knitalong and I won a prize! Well, actually, it is not that surprising because, just like the best children’s parties where nobody gets left out, Sarah made sure that everyone won a prize.
And my prize was pretty super. Sarah gifted me a fair isle snowflake hat pattern, Snawheid by Kate Davies. Follow the link to have a look. I think I’ll leave off the huge pom pom, but the snowflake pattern is fab.
So then I had to go shopping for some yarn to do justice to the pattern and I chose Jamieson & Smith 2-ply jumper weight yarn which is one of the yarn recommendations in the pattern. The only disappointment is that the yarn colours don’t have names, just numbers, I love colour names. Anyway, I bought two balls of colour 141, a pale blue green, and colour 1A, the colour of cream.
I should start soon to get it done before Spring arrives.
