The yarn I purchased a couple of years back! 2011! haha! A yarn has a time and a pattern, some take longer to figure out. The yarn is Madeline Tosh 80/10/10 MCN Worsted, colourway Toulouse- Lautrec. It is a stunning yarn and I completely understand, Madeline Tosh's popularity.
I made another hat, Cocoon, I had a look for it today. Hopefully, I will find it. I guess due to Ireland's changeable weather has me in a habit of taking hats off and tossing it wherever. It's another free pattern that I love. I didn't even get a photo of the Cocoon hat. I knitted the Cocoon hat with leftovers of my grey and yellow Drops Nepal sweater. I asked John did I look like a bumblebee in it and he said no, I looked like a wasp.
I have another one casted on in blue. I like to order slightly too much yarn then use the leftovers to make hats and mittens. I like having a good collection because in Ireland, you can get rained on each time and nothing is nicer than a warm, dry hat!
