It is a busy time of year--yarn tasting at the shop, sample knitting, classes and spinning. My project for yarn tasting the Snowy Woods Hat made with HiKoo Tiara. It is a wool blend sprinkled with beads and sequins. I typically do not use shiny objects in my knitting, but this was the perfect yarn for the project and it bloomed nicely when I blocked the project. The pattern is part of a collection of six patterns and is available as an e-book or single pattern.
