I've had the Felicity hat pattern in my Ravelry queue forever. Then, I had the yarn I wanted to use. Five 50 gram balls from the Farmers' Market in Vermont, dyed by the sheep's owner. It's an amazing blue — a bit of lapis lazuli in its deep blue with lighter flecks throughout.
It's been perfect for our slowly cooling fall (as opposed to California which slammed into fall-winter with rain, snow, and cold this week). Unfortunately, it's just not slouchy enough. I wanted a good bit of drag on the back. The front, though, works well. It's long and tight.
I'll probably give this one to Bama –it's so cute on her! — and knit up another since I have about two balls left (I also made a pair of Toasty wrist/thumb warmers, but I'll do those pictures later this week).
Wowza. Look at how brown my hair looks in this picture. Someone needs a cut and color, stat.
Clapotis on hand, as well, for all over warmth. Seriously, isn't that blue gorgeous?
