WIP Wednesday and Yarn Along

Oh happy day! I managed to finish my Journey Slouch Hat! I remembered when I was spinning this roving that there was a small ball that had been spun up previously. I went searching for this yarn, scratching through the wool cupboard and I found it! So the hat is finished, Jen was so kind to wear it for the photos. I love the softness of this yarn, a flax, silk and Merino blend. I wasn’t too sure about the colour, but I fell in love with it when I first saw it as a roving, (you know what I mean, you see some yarn, have no idea what you’re going to do with it, it makes your heart so happy to just look at it and you simply must have it).

I am also busy designing another creature, when I saw this variegated blue I just knew it was the right colour for the project:)
Hope you are having an inspired day.

    Glad you had enough yarn to finish the slouchy hat.
    I’m wracking my brains – what creature is sooo blue and ‘chubby’ looking?
    Can’t wait to see…

    That pattern is super fun and it shows off handspun beautifully. I’ve four hats in that pattern now. Yours is beautiful.

    Happy day that you remembered hidden yarn! Your daughter is so beautiful Linda and the hat looks just lovely on her.
    The blue yarn…a bird or a whale? Guess we must wait and see.
    Happy yarn along.

    Hi Linda,

    I am guessing with that beautiful blue….. a whale?

    Glad you could finish the hat. Jen looks gorgeous in it!

    Your hat turned out beautiful. VERY pretty model.
    Oooo, a new creation. I love the yarn. I didn’t have a clue, then I read Tracey’s comment. I am guessing SHE guessed correct. Can’t wait to see if it is a whale.

    Beautiful hat, can’t wait to see what you’re making!

    The colors of that hat are very pretty; they remind me of one of those quiet, watery winter sunrises.

    LOVE the hat! Shape, colour and all! I’m very tempted to try my fledgling knitting skills on this one……you make it look so easy!!
    New pattern?…. I”m thinking a whale….. or maybe an octopus, if you don’t already have one!

    Such a beautiful blue for the new creature – what’s it going to be ???

  17. Linda February 29, 2012 at 10:41 pm #

    Thanks so much everyone!

    Is that you or your daughter? Stunning. And the hat is nice too! 🙂 Is the new toy a whale? Such a pretty blue.

    A whale – that’s my guess too. That hat is gorgeous, it really is, but the beautiful model totally steals the show.

    Your hat is gorgeous, and that blue is beautiful, I am thinking something from the water – whale, fish…I guess we wait and see 🙂
