Pretty Purple Pooling and all Yellow Flowers are not the Same

I finished my Malabrigo Rikke Hat and I’m very pleased.

This shows you that you can knit a pattern in a different weight yarn and with different needles if you know how you knit. I’m a loose knitter, and I knit this DK pattern in Sport weight with needles one size down. But my first Rikke Hat is a little big, and I’m a loose knitter. So this worked for me. And I love the pooling on the brim!

As promised, here is a photo comparison of Spice Bush and Forsythia. What was I thinking? They aren’t the same at all, except both are yellow.

I received my Bougie Beaver Solo Fingering, along with a “sorry” gift. This made me happy. I can’t wait to cast on my Jessica Jones Cowl!
