Tam to keep me head warm

A knit finished in two days? And only two days from date of yarn purchase?

Photobucket

Pattern: Three Tams (I made the third one)
Yarn: Mission Falls 1824 wool and Noro Kureyon (only used half hank of Noro and one and a tiny bit of Mission Falls)

Set the fan on it and had it dry overnight - and it actually fits! (to my jaw-dropping astonishment, it's actually a bit big. May require elastic woven through rim after a few wears).

I now have a hankering for more Mission Falls.

Now I have a purpose for orphan skeins of Noro.

Yay! Great work. I was interested in doing one of the 3 tams, but hadn't started colorwork, yet. Now I'm on my second small project and ready to roll. It's back on the list!

Wow! That is gorgeous!

Wow that is lovely. You should make one for that friend who drove you to the yarn store. I bet she would drive you there again for a beautiful hat like that.

Stunning. I have been thinking about making one, wondering which yarns to choose. Your choices have inspired me and tomorrow I start.

That looks great on you!! The size of my head beacomes evident when I wear most Tams, but you own that. I can't wait to see all the color combos you'll come up with.
