a hat

I needed a quick going-away gift for someone who is moving to northern Vermont - it's going to be cold there in the winter months!

I had a wonderfully quiet Mother's Day and a couple of hours to sit and knit this. It's the Great Meadow's Hat from Green Mountain Spinnery's book "99 yarns". A great pattern for leftovers. I used three shades of Lamb's Pride worsted; plus the blue is Mountain Mohair, fitting I thought, since the yarn is spun in Vermont...

Hope the recipient will like it.

Meanwhile, the garden keeps exploding.
This is the Solomon's Seal I showed you a couple of weeks back. It's now a good 2 feet tall, and about to bloom.

Then we always get these pretty tulips we can't remember planting.

 And finally, the lilacs are opening!


  1. Ummm I can smell those lilacs from here!

  2. Flowers we don't remember planting are the best! Love the hat.

  3. You are such a clever lassie, Karin. Love from your cousin in Kirriemuir.

  4. You whipped that hat up in just a couple of hours?! You're amazing! It's beautiful! And so are your flowers :) You always have such lovely flower pictures!



Thank you for leaving a comment! It means the world to me.
