Ahhhh me hearties!

'We Call Them Pirates' from Hello Yarns.Here is the lurverly J modelling my new titfer! Two days knitting and look what I did. I normally avoid Fair Isle stylie knitting as it annoys me - but after mastering Continental knitting it was a doddle.
Not only was it a doddle - I didn't throw it once -but I actually was engrossed in and really enjoyed making it. I now have requests from M and J for their own - but I don't want to make another one straight off so they may have a little wait. I used Jaeger Matchmaker Merino in double knit - it knitted up very nicely. The hat needs to be blocked but I couldn't wait to take a picture of it.
