Getting Ready

Tomorrow is the annual Turkey Trot, which I’ll be participating in for the first time. We’re to walk a three-mile loop on Thanksgiving morning before heading off to the festivities. I’m currently knitting a new holiday hat and hoping to have it done by tomorrow to warm my heid whilst walking.


(pattern is Snawheid by Kate Davies, yarn is Jamieson & Smith Natural Shetland and 2ply jumper weight)

Isn’t it delightfully festive? I absolutely love the wee snowflakes parading their way ’round the hat. I went on a stash dive and came up with these two colours, which I feel go together quite well. 

My Ishbel was finished a few days ago, though due to lack of yarn I had to refrain from knitting the edging. But I’m consoling myself with the fact that I’m sure this won’t be my last Ishbel.
