A New Project

I make a lot of hats and I’ve been thinking of making a green one for spring…then today I saw this pattern and immediately purchased it!  I LOVED it!  Now hopefully I will have the skillz or figure out the skillz to make it! 

I pulled all of my green yarn out and the Hubs and I looked at it.

It came down to the two on the left and I’ve decided to go with the Wildflower Whimsy in Emerald Isle…the second to the left skein.  I love the Socks That Rock, but I do think I want this more bright green for spring…and a bonus if I finish it in time for St. Patrick’s Day!

Now off to wind it.  I’m going to have to work it double, which I’ve never done before, as the pattern calls for worsted and it’s a fingering weight…

Wish me luck!

I LOVE your greens! And yes, the hat will look gorgeous in that second green...or any other. I can hardly wait to see it done and it's worsted weight too...bonus!
