Um, this hat may have been finished since October... I am a bad blogger. When I got this yarn I immediately knew what I wanted to make with it. Way back in in 2006 I made a double knit hat
from koigu that made me think of stained glass. I loved that hat, but it was a tiny bit shallower than I would have liked. When I made that hat, double knitting was a brand new technique for me, so it seemed only fitting that I stretch myself with this version as well.
So with this fantastic yarn in hand, I set off to make a replacement, this time in fair-isle. I have made two fair-isle projects so far, a baby mitten in 2008
(yes just one) and a fair-isle bag in 2007
(ahem, that I may have never lined and may still live in my mending basic). So yes finishing something fair-isle!
