The Farmer gets a hat!

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.

Thanks for the link to the hat pattern. It's perfect for the chemo hat I'm going to knit for a friend of mine.
