Some time ago, this skein of yarn followed me home:

It tried to be a lot of things, but nothing worked.  Eventually, I riffed on a pattern by Woolly Wormhead and made a hat … it’s not a perfect hat, but it’s warm and soft, and perfectly serviceable :).

Cast On Monday: Firewood Goodale

I was going to cast on for a hat last week. Really! I wound my Tosh Light (in William Morris)…

… then I put it in a bag with the right size needle and my copy of Weekend Hats …

… and then I waited for the right moment to cast on.

But, instead … I bought new yarn at the Hub Mills Store when I worked on Friday.  Pashmina in Firewood

The photo does not really do it justice.  This on one of those layers-upon-layers colorways — rainbows under water, oil in a jar, gorgeous beyond reckoning! I’m making myself a Goodale  cardigan with it.  I’ve already got about two inches done.  It is so soft and pretty!  The William Morris hat will have to wait a bit longer.
