I've been swatching a fair isle pattern for the next class I am giving on the subject and discovered that 90 sts of chunky yarn makes a perfect ski hat! I am using some really constrasting colours (forest green and gold) that was not meant to be pretty so I am a little sad about that but at least the coyotes will see me coming on ski trails and clear the way...hopefully.
Or, I could give this hat to my sister for Dog walking with Poonie during hunting season... It makes me nervous that they walk around in deer infested woods. Eek!
I haven't knit fair isle in a long while and it feels good to be at it again. This chunky wool is soft and fast to work with too. I should whip up a few Xmas parcels in no time in this direction.
