FO: Another hat for another BIL
Hi again - knitting another hat for the other follicly challenged brother-in-law. His is being made from Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk in a sagey green and ivory. This yarn is so soft, I love working with it. yummy. This is my first attempt at two-color knitting using a stranding method - I guess it's stranding, I'm carrying both colors across the round. It's been a lot of fun, and I can now knit ambidexterously. Party!

Thank you thank you thank you! I think Kev's head will be very appreciative of the alpaca silk blend this winter. I am all about making hats right now, love them. I think it's because they're so quick. And they've been very good for me to work on during our 3-day LOTR marathon that we've been having this holiday :D

Looks fabulous!

Are you using the stranding method where you carry one color in each hand? (throw one, pick the other)
