Last year, when Janet and I were talking about attending the Woodstock Fleece Festival in October, we decided to make ourselves hats for the event. We had heard that it could get quite cold in the barns and that was where my booth was. Janet made the Seashell Beret and I made the Twiggy Hat by YYC Knits which is a free pattern over on Ravelry. Both hats used one skein of yarn. I used my cashmere and merino yarn and it was a delight to knit with. The yarn is super soft which made knitting the hat that much more enjoyable. The hat features a simple cable pattern and, at that time, I just couldn’t get enough of knitting cables so it provided a very satisfying knit. A faux fur pom-pom set the hat off perfectly!
I hope to participate in this year’s Woodstock Fleece Festival. My booth has been booked and I am excited for the opportunity to be a vendor again this year. However, the current panademic has been changing things up quite a bit, including events in the fibre world. If you’d like to see my yarn in person, check out my Where to Find Us page for upcoming shows and events.
Until next time, stay safe and happy knitting!
