The kit for this hat arrived last weekend as you may recall from this post, and I cast on Tuesday evening. And couldn't stop knitting, because the yarn is wonderful and, of course, the colors.
It's really the perfect hat. Even Miss Figg thinks so.
The verdict: Sure this is a simple idea and you could put one of these together with your own scraps. But half the fun of this project was the kit, which arrived so beautifully put together. I had not knit with Blue Sky's Woolstok before and am so glad I did. It's a really nice yarn and the colors are beautiful. I'm sure I'll do another with my own scraps at some point, but I'm so glad I started with the kit.
