As in many places in the US, the weather this year has been unpredictable at best. Swinging from one extreme to another. But we here in MN have apparently tipped from the hot end of summer lazy hazy days to the crisp cool evenings of fall. While fall is my favorite season, I'm a bit sad at the quick fading of summer. Both girls are back into school, Anna is now in HIGH SCHOOL. My how did that happen. Emily is charging full steam into 4th grade, happy to move from class to class. I'm just trying to keep up.
the wonderful Ginny of Fat Cat Knits. Her eye for color is just amazing and I'm so happy to use her fiber. If you have any interest in spinning or knitting from great product, than you won't go wrong with buying from Ginny.
On that note, I'm working up a hat, using my handspun that I spun up from Ginny. And to top it off (bad bad pun) I'm using a pattern that Ginny worked up. It is called the Floppy Fairisle Hat. Now I'm simplifying it by only using two colors of yarn, a beautiful neutral and a charming blue/brown mix. I just started it, but here is a quick peek at it.
