I have a few hat pictures for you!
It took a lot of driving, but I found some places with weather (sort of) cool enough for me to bust out my hand spun hat and wear it in public!
Yesterday it took its maiden voyage to the Ninkasi brewery in Eugene, Oregon. (Sadly not my taste in beer, but my brother loved their bitter beer selection.)
Then, today in Portland, we made a stop by The Naked Sheep and picked up a few pretties for some future projects.
It was too dark for pictures of the new yarn when we got back to camp, but hopefully I can post some tomorrow. It was a great little shop, and the lady at the counter was extremely friendly, which got me thinking… Does anyone have any Seattle yarn shops that they would suggest? I do love them so, and can’t wait to check out more on this trip!
What to do, what to do…
I’ve been working on my husband’s super bland alpaca hat. I even finished it. Then, Mr. Vanilla Hat Guy said it was to short. *sigh*
I decided rather than frogging the top of the hat I’d pick up stitches around the bottom. I’ve been attempting to pick up stitches ever since. I’m really hoping I won’t have to pick out my cast on, and frankly I’m not totally sure that would work anyway.
Anyone have suggestions on adding an inch to a finished hat? This thing is crazy making.
Finally! Just in the last seconds of January too!
The Lazer Sheep Yarns Etsy Shop is open for business!!!
Super excited, but that’s not what’s been keeping me from posting though 😛 it’s been succulent center pieces,
A sweet baby hat for a soon to be here baby,
Love the sweet little top!
Succulent center pieces,
and more succulent center pieces.
I’ve been hijacked by the wedding brigade and am also working hard on the shower and bachelorette party prep. Hopefully I’ll be able to keep up with things here, and maybe even get in some Christmas knitting! (haha)
Hope everyone enjoys the shop, and please let me know if you have any suggestions, or colorways you would like to see 🙂 (It’s sparse now, but more will be added as soon as there’s time to dye up some more yarn.)
