What Kind of Yarn Are You?

In all the excitement of my weekend classes, I believe I forgot blog of the day yesterday and there are so many, many inspiring blogs out there....this is one
I've personally been haunting recently as I am now completely obsessed with fair isle. Kathleen Taylor's Dakota Dreams blog...I first ran into Kathleen's
knitting on Ravelry and am blown away with her designs. She also is blogging daily, so perhaps is participating in NaBloPoMo also. Her blog can be found at:

Hat of the day (before this gets too past Halloween) is the following hat I knit
for another one of my special little children I take care of...the whole child
wearing the hat is really, really sweet and he is all dressed up in matching
outfit, but as this is my only photo, and need to protect identity, will sadly
have to show mostly just the hat.



This is my go to baby hat pattern for all of my preemie hats and will show up
from time to time in my many hats, with a revised version by me of same
original hat...
They fit all my babies beautifully and it's a well-written, simple to knit
pattern.
This pattern is called the Sweet and Simple Baby Hat by Debbie Bodmer.
