Yarn: Two of my handspun yarns
Pattern: The Amanda Hat by Gina House
Started on: 1/3/15
Notes: (And this, kids, is what we call foreshadowing!) I got a third of the way into it and worried that I didn’t have enough yarn, so I ripped it out and added another yarn/color for the purl rows. Now I have about 25% of the original yarn left over and a whooooooooole lot of the second yarn. But according to my calculations if I hadn’t brought in the second yarn, I would have been about 20 yards short. So, good call… even though now I have to knit a matching/complimentary hat.
