Canadian-Winter Hat coda

Leave a comment

Although the deadline for the charity knitting project came and went, that didn’t mean I’d worked through all the colorways of Lamb’s Pride Bulky that had caught my eye. Yes, back in June I’d knit that first successful one in red (“Wine Splash” to be exact—and can I just say that I love that Brown Sheep still gives its colorways actual names and not just alphanumeric codes?) and had meant it for myself. But as my pile of pretty hats grew, I told myself that if I really wanted one in another colorway, I’d donate the red one to charity as well and then make another one for myself in the new color. Which is exactly what happened. When I stopped by my LYS to pick up some more yarn for the charity hats, I saw a colorway that hadn’t been there before: Frosted Periwinkle. Telling myself that it would clash less with some of my coats than the red one did, I sent the latter off to someone who genuinely needed it, and made a last hat for myself out of the new colorway.
