I'm participating in Yarn Along ,a chance to share what you are knitting and reading...although I haven't managed to get this hat on the needles yet today. I did knit 5 of them for Christmas presents last year and they turned out really well , I love this pattern. I have a few pottery buttons that I use but a wooden one would be nice as well. The wool is from Brigg's and Little which is the oldest woolen mill in Canada...and just happens to be located not far from my home.
I'm only two chapters into the book but so far, so good.
