Sometimes I don’t feel like knitting, but if I keep casting on projects I’ll eventually find something fun. This week it is the Pollen hat by Andrea Mowry. I’m using the Local Wool by Garden Wool & Dye Co. that I picked up last weekend.
I love this hat. The pattern is fun to knit. The yarn feels like it came from a sheep. The color is something I would normally not reach for, but it called to me when I saw it. The colors remind me of harvest time, which is around the time evenings get cool enough to pull on a hat. As a bonus, this hat is perfect for cheering on the Iowa Hawkeyes.
My playground knitting project is a pair of Rose City Rollers for Audrey in leftover Rainbow Dashing yarn.
I hope you are working on something you are enjoying this week.
