Yarn from Alaska..

Son and daughter in law vacationed in Alaska this summer and while there sent me some lovely alpaca yarn.  I worried it around a bit and finally decided to make him a hat for this winter.   I’ve found that not only do 2 color hats look pretty, they are also the warmest since there is actually a double layer of yarn.  This is what I came up with…

KnitCap If I could only figure out how to make my decreases fit with the alternating colors, I would be a happy camper… 😦  Anyway, I thought I would finally graduate to doing the Kitchener stitch like everyone else and do it on the inside of the garment… well… no…  Never again…   I managed to drop about 5 stitches turning it and then had to turn it back again.  🙂   I won’t try that again.  I think perhaps the old decrease down to 5 or 6 stitches and then pull up tight and knot it will work just fine.. 🙂

It’s a beautiful day in North Texas today… Youngest son is here and we are about to go renovate the front flower bed..  Lots of work in store.  Can’t wait.. Really hate what it has turned into since all the flooding in the spring and the dryness since then.   Had to remove all the roses from the north side of the house because they ALL developed rose rosette.. 😦  Can’t plant any roses back because it stays in the ground with any left over roots … so replaced them with crape myrtle and some regular shrubs.  Will be pretty when they grow a bit, but sure miss my roses… 😦

Have a wonderful day..  🙂
