After having frogged it from the Spirogyra gloves the beautiful skein of turqoise yarn kept calling to me. I decided to make it in to a hat. Horsey Girl seems drawn to cable hats so I am using the pattern my wonderful pal Kristin sent me. It was really kizmet - I had seen the hat knit in a LYS but you had to buy an entire book to get the pattern. Then a few weeks later she sent me a note and the notecard had the pattern on it. How amazing is that? The pattern calls for Zarina yarn doubled but not only is that expensive it would be quite thick. Instead this is Zarina which I found on sale. I think it's a perfect choice. So far I'm just on the ribbing but I think this will go quickly.
