The Farmer didn't really need a hat but this yarn arrived and the texture was just too lovely to miss!
The yarn is Cascade Greenland which came into the shop 2 weeks ago, but I only received a fraction of the order I placed. It was a clearance yarn from the supplier and the price meant that it now became affordable. The suggested retail was about $12 for 100 grams, right now in the shop it is $6.95 each, not bad for 100 grams of superwash merino! It took 150 grams to make this toque. You could easily make a beanie out of just one. But hurry there aren't many left.
The pattern is from Ravelry: A hat fit for a Fella
Bowmanville's Apple Festival was a huge success, a lot of clearance yarn found new homes. Some lucky shoppers picked up a few of the Samples we had on sale. The weather was perfect, considering the weather people all predicted rain the whole day earlier in the week.
I am at home today, doing those things you get to do on your days off, laundry, cleaning...paperwork. Our nice mail delivery person just dropped a box of lovely new shawl pins and patterns from a new company.
You will have to wait to see the rest!
See you Soon.
