So you all know how it goes...Your friend wants you to go to the LYS with her. Now, you don't really need anything but some how you find something your have to make . Here is mine!

The shop was offering a free pattern with purchase -- Araucania Copihue yarn, colorway 910. It is yummy super-fine alpaca. I had to modify the original pattern to fit my hand and the photo reflects the third try.

It is a gift for me!

Noro Hat is Finished

Thank goodnesss this was a gift for someone with a bigger head than mine. When I make it for my head (yes I had guage) I will use 6 and 7 needles instead of 7 and 8 needles. I even made it 4 rows shorter and I almost ran out of yarn.....

This is from the first One-Skein Wonder book -- "Ela's Favorite Hat". The yarn is Noro's Silk Garden in colorway 251 --I hope my friend likes it!
