  24. What a pretty hat!

  25. That blue is gorgeous. I'm Stitched-Together on Ravelry

  26. I love your non-striping yarns so much because they have a grea depth of color, Bluebird is fabulous. I like the way it is a shock of color on top of the head - not everyone is brave enough to color their OWN locks in rich colors- but a hat, fabulous.
    I like the way indie dyers are mixed up with a very affordable Knit Picks samples too - sometimes a project calls for something less dear.

  27. I love your podcast! Love this really cool hat pattern.
