Fade to... green? Yarn Harlot's Un-original Hat pattern

fade to... green?This boy is just a fount of knitting inspiration. Please note- the nicely matching hat I've made for his big brother from "The Yarn Harlot's" "Unoriginal" Hat Pattern. (Actually- It just happened to match- I swear!)

I used Berrocco's Ultra Alpaca in some randomly stashed green color. I held the yarn doubled and used a set of five US size 10.5 DPN's. This could very well be, the Hat of Christmas 07 around here. It's a nice knit (not boring- but still easy) and FAST..... Have I mentioned I like FAST? Will be trying to work out a matching scarf pattern later. Then- I need to find a pattern for THIS. That would be perfect for the middle boy.

I'm experimenting with Jaeger Natural Fleece on a size 11 for my potato headed, oldest son. (boy has a huge head... just like his Dad;) It's a very marled look- totally different than middle son's hat. Which is both good, and necessaary as they do not "Do"-matchy- matchy.

I'll also be working up a smaller version for the youngest... he DOES do matchy matchy;)

More pics later. BTW... my down stream sp reently received a pkg and posted about it- she likey she likey. Whew. Let's just say our tastes are not exactly the same so I was REALLY glad she liked her goodies;)
