Feeling Sheepy (yawn)

I love Alpacas. And I love sheep. There's just something cute and knitterly about them. So you can just imagine my delight in seeing this "I love my sheep hat" pattern by Hjerte GO'H design.

20130805-121427.jpg Isn't that just adorable?! We are teaching a class to knit this hat beginning August 6th from 6-8 pm at our store in Hayden. If you are new to color work, this will be a fun and informative class for you. It's been awhile since I've done any color work. This is my progress on the hat...

20130805-122616.jpg (I'm actually knitting an alternate version) I'm knitting mine in Berroco Ultra Alpaca in a heathered red and off-white. I'm also using ChiaoGoo Knit Red Lace circular needles. I love love LOVE these needles! They are slick, sharp, and have a flexible cable with no memory. Even better, they cost about $8! I had forgotten just how much I love doing color work! A little bit of red here...a touch of white there...and pretty soon a picture begins to appear. It's magical! If you can't come in to our class but still want to make this crown of lambs, you can find the pattern here Enjoy! Maria
