It’s a hat! ( and a give-away!)

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!

  1. I love polar moon and cerulean mix, but I could just as easily love polar moon and blue surf. Mike says, “Are you staring at balls of yarn on the internet now? “

  2. I think the lobster mix and berry pie mix would look good together for the berroco. Colorinche and very berry for the malabrigo. 🙂

  3. I’m intrigued with Berroco’s “Lunar Mix” – maybe with a yellow (like “Pollen” perhaps?) from Malabrigo. Gray and yellow… classic color combo. Fabulous giveaway – thank you!

  4. OK, I like Fluo (010) in Malabrigo and 62186 Caribean Mix in the Berroco. Where is the spell check ??Lots of the brights I gravitate to were sold out in Malabrigo !
