My first completed project on 2015 is the Corkscrew Hat. I started it on December 30 and binge-watched Season 4 of Downton Abbey to get it finished. That might be why my model, Blanche, has such a 1920’s air about her!
I used Malabrigo Worsted for the gray and winter white Ultra Alpaca from Berroco. The two yarns together make a super-soft, warm hat perfect for my morning walk–so no excuses for me! I am starting the companion mittens asap!
I am teaching this hat starting Thursday if you’d like to make one for yourself.
Now for the Give-away: It’s time to order more Malabrigo and more Ultra Alpaca and I’d love your help. Visit the Berroco and Malabrigo websites, choose your favorite color combo and leave a comment below or on our Facebook page by Monday, January 5 at 6 p.m. You get to help me with my order and I don’t have to make all those decisions on my own!
We’ll do a random drawing from all the comments for a chance to win a skein of Malabrigo and a skein of Ultra Alpaca.
Enjoy the rest of this dreary weekend and don’t forget to nominate your favorite colors!
