Musings on the art of knitting, spinning, enjoying a cup of tea and noticing the way nature inspires design. (Life with a little dog in Portland, Oregon)

This is from Knitters Fall 2006. I used a strand each of Rowen Tweed and a silk cashmere fingering weight to get to the right gauge. It came out rather smaller than I expected, but not smaller than they said. I just don't have a clear idea of head sizes I guess! It was fun to knit, but hard on the hands. Bulky yarn doing tight and scrunchy things. That's the only way I can describe it.
