So how happy was I when a good friend was off on a two-week cruise to South America, and when he asked "do you want anything?" and I said "yarn!", he actually remembered and bought a ball of thick thick thick...almost pencil roving...cream colored SOMETHING. I'm guessing it is some type of wool/llama mix.
I first tried to knit a floppy beret with this. It looked like crap. I dreamt one night of a cap knit like a headband with a top. So I tried this...it has a bit of a wavy cable o the band, followed by the top.
It's being modeled by a hedgehog.
I really like it, it is wonderfully warm and I'll think of Steve and Patty whenever I wear it.
