When looking around the shop I saw a hat mitten pattern kit filled with Classic Elite.
The fiber content is Merino Alpaca and Angora. 60% 30% 10%
Do I need more yarn? Not at all and do I have the fiber in my stash to blend this? Yes I do. What color do I want to make this? Since my first thought was a Christmas gift for my Daughter Jenn I went to a soft shell pink and white.
I couldn't buy the pattern for the kit without buying the yarn so I passed but I thought about finding the pattern at home. That wasn't meant to be because the mittens are a free pattern but the hat is only available in the kit.
I went looking at other patterns and found this one that I like even better.
Imagine the red in a shell pink and you have my vision. I have the fiber in the stash so I can blend the merino/alpaca/angora mix to get the right hand while gaining the warmth and halo. This will be my first project in color work and I'm excited to work the whole process.
Lots more to say and lots of fun stuff happening but I wanted to post more frequently instead of long posts so stay tuned...
