Tri-color scheme

This hat is my latest thrill. It turned out so fun and snuggly I just can't say enough about it. As I may have mentioned before, I'm on a kick to use up all my yarn. I realize this seems silly cause I'll just need to buy more, but well, that is what us junkies do. So once I completed this hat that purple was finished leaving a bit of gray and yellow with some purple I borrowed in case I didn't have enough for the hat. From those bits came this crocheted pocket. I must say I have been crocheting since I was about 7, but this is the FIRST time I have crochets something other than a straight line (ie: blankets and chains). I was pretty excited.

A bit about the hat... I'm really happy with this design. As I was knitting I decided I didn't want just plain ol' stripes. I began with some seed stitching and then did some purling for unique stripes. What do you think? I'd love to hear. Watch for these two pieces to be entering my shop.

As always please take the poll and hope you come back soon!


  1. I voted no, but only because I'm poor, not because I don't loooooove handspun yarn.
    I love your tri-color scheme. I also love working a project in three colors.
