my pa-pom hat & a winner

you might be wondering why i am still talking about hand-knits in march when all i can really think of are sandals & skirts without tights, but the honest truth is- i'm a knitting addict. this past fall, i learned to knit in the round. after one successful hat, i kept on knitting. pretty soon all of my friends & family will have their own hat.

this is a keeper, though. i began knitting this special hat at knitting club last week & finished it while we were driving to papa's service. so many feelings are woven into the yarn- it feels so good to wear it & think of him. i'm calling it my "pa-pom hat."

the pattern is actually the ribbstickad hat by wiksten. i was immediately drawn to it for it's ease & simplicity. i chose a lamb's pride yarn in a robin's egg blue. i made the pompom by wrapping yarn around my hand. the pattern was $6 & so well worth it. jenny does an excellent job at creating simple instructions for a beginner like me.


and the winner of today's happy mail giveaway is jael! thank you so much to all who entered. i was truly amazed by the turnout! jael, i will email you shortly!
