I have been eyeing the Brambles pattern from Knitty for a very long time now. As I have multiple stockinette projects on the needles I decided what better time to start a new hat, than now. I plan to knit the longest version, I like as much slouch as possible. I'm looking forward to knitting the pattern, it looks very interesting and like a lot of fun.
I'm using Cleckheaton perfect day 8ply wool. It's a 70% merino 30% alpaca blend, completely natural with no dyes used in the coloring. The yarn is a lovely light brown/grey color and so soft. Definitely going to be an enjoyable knit.
