Feel the Love

Dee:  Once in a while I like to follow a month’s theme for my “hat of the month” as I have chosen to do here with my February hat  the Flower Love Fair Isle Tam.  I saw a store sample of this pattern when I was on vacation in California at the Alamitos Bay Yarn Company.  They had used a skein of Classic Elite Yarns Liberty Wool as the contrast color paired with a natural off white  as the main color.   I wasn’t sold on their pick of yarn for the main color, the texture was wrong, so I went with my own choice Malabrigo Yarn Rios, which just happens to be one of my friend Kathryn’s favorite yarns.  As for the pattern, I wasn’t enamored with the way Chart B was presented however once I wrapped my mind around it I sailed through and finished quickly.

I love tams and I love blocking tams.  I have a certain plate that just seems to be the perfect size for blocking a tam to fit my head.

I’m already on to a second hat for this month for my son which I will hopefully complete this weekend. Then I will pick another hat project for March.  Hats are just so fun to knit!

Happy knitting!
