Yarn: Glenfidditch wool in Silver and Peacock
I fell in love with a skein of blue-purple yarn at Stitches East 2013. I looked at my handy project/yarn buying list, and chose this hat pattern … which meant I needed a second skein in a contrast color. I made the hat, loved it … but it was taking FOREVER to dry after washing, so I put it out on the deck on a nice warm day. Alas, the sun ruined it — almost all the purple highlights were bleached out, in a single afternoon outside. So sad.

Yarn: Ella Rae Lace Merino Chunky in Acorn Brown
Ella Rae confuses me by using the word “Lace” in all their yarns … but I forgive them, because their chunky yarn is soooooo delicious! I love the yarn, the pattern, and the finished hat. Thumbs up all-around.

I get confused about Ella Rae too! I want to write them a letter saying “CHUNKY LACE YARN CONFUSES THE HECK OUT OF ME, PLEASE STOP.”
