I picked up a sample skein of (gorgeous) locally grown and processed brown cashmere at a fiber festival last week. I initially bought it to test the yarn for bigger projects, but we'll see if I can actually get more. Since the skein was so small, I blended it with some creamy organic merino I had and knit two hats. The first one came out waaaaay...too small. The second one turned out just right. Hat #2 (on the right) is my first completed fairisle piece. It figures, when I finally decide I want to knit fairisle on my machine, the pattern reader breaks. I'm hoping to bring it up up to the knit machine doctor in Vancouver, but until then I am hand selecting all my patterns...it takes forever, ugh.
