Elf Hat

Friday, October 2nd, 2009

Last weekend saw me at a weekend craft fair in Dufftown. It was running alongside the Autumn Whisky Festival. It seemed at times that the whisky was definately more popular than the crafts.

Near my stall there was a spinner who spun over the two days and was happy to impart knowledge and to let us try using the spinning wheel. As well as selling her knitted garments she was also selling small quantities of her hand spun and hand dyed yarns. It was too much for me having to sit there and look at her stall. I eventually purchased some yarn with absolutely no idea what I was going to use it for.

It never made it to the stash boxes. I found a pattern for this hat at and fell in love with it. Not being the flowery sort of person with my headwear I found these buttons in my button stash and used them instead. Roll on the cold weather. This is a very comfy hat and will be very warm
