Yarn Along

It's Wednesday, let's talk about yarn.
 I have 2 knitting projects in the works, and one "secret" craft that uses yarn.
The secret craft is not knitting, and it is almost done.
It is a "secret" because it is a gift, that has yet to be given 
and the person/persons who will be receiving it read my blog.
I am so excited, squealing at this very moment!

First up...

I have made so many of these, it's a fun, quick, easy knit...
and I am hoping to find a friend who needs a hat.
You see, all my friends have hats, because that is all I knitted in the beginning,
and one Christmas, everyone received a hat.

I really love the tags that come with this yarn from "my" Alpaca Farm.
This yarn came from Spacie, Swag and Vauneese and all three are pictured on the tag.

Knit - Purl - Slip
If you know those 3 stitches, you can knit this simple hat.

I am also working on another Gallatin Scarf

All went perfectly until I finished the main lace and started the first row.
Then things went all Willy Wonka, and I kept forgetting what I was doing.
It's a big mistake but I can't really see it, 
so I think I may just restart where I am and pretend nothing happened.

This yarn was gifted to me by 
Andrea at This Knitted Life - Tributary Yarns 
Check her out, she has a fun blog 
and her hand dyed yarn is amazing...look for her on Raverly,
you can purchase her yarn there.
