My last knitted gift for Christmas, YEA!! This pattern is call Basia and is a really interesting and easy knit. Just enough texture to keep your attention but an easy texture to memorize :). I kettle dyed this with an acid dye and it is a deeper blue than my picture shows, I’m not much of a photographer. This is my 2nd Basia hat (made one as a Christmas gift last year) and I knit this with the same sport/dk weight yarn I had processed at the mill from the Polypay fleece I was given. I have only one more skein of the yarn left out of 11. I do have two more fleeces in the trunk of my car, but haven’t had the extra money to have them processed into roving or yarn. If my car would stop being a money pit I could send them off to process :P.
This was the first snow of our 2017-2018 winter. This was a week & 1/2 ago or so. I should have put it up before, but… It wasn’t much, just a dusting, and it has since melted. We are suppose to get some snow tomorrow morning and Monday, so just in time for Christmas, tho it isn’t suppose to be much, maybe a 1/4 to 1/2 inch. This, so far, is a very low moisture winter for us, and I won’t complain about the warmer weather, much better than -40, tho I think Jan will bring much colder temps than we have been having.
