I knitted the hat Dobbellue, a pattern by Arne and Carlos, I even used the same colors that they had chosen and I must say: the pattern was awful! The 2 color pattern in the book is wrong on 2 lines and the lining is WAY too small if the outside is knitted as instructed and finally the pattern states it's a medium, but it is large, large and large,( yes my gauge was right on for stitches and rows, that was a first too). Having stated the worse, I must admit I love the hat. My people have LARGE heads and I was worried the medium sizing would be way too small. The yarn knits into a beautiful fabric and the colors are, well, just happy colors for winter. Oh, and the hat is soo warm, something my daughter will enjoy in Minnesota where the temps are going down to -30 degrees. How I remember that cold when I was in college up at ST. Norbert's in the Greenbay area. Now that was a life time ago!
I'm reading Farmer Boy, I have read this book so many times and I never tire of it. The discriptions
of the food...yum-and that farm! But the best is reading about his mother spinning and weaving all their clothing yardage, WOW!
