This is the first wool purchase I have made in a year. The reason I decided to stop buying yarn was because my stash was really large and I had this really lofty goal of saving money and purchasing a home in 2015.
And guess what? I didn’t purchase yarn, and I bought my first house.
So, in honor of sticking to a really important and personal goal, I marked the one year non-yarn-buying-versary by purchasing the specified amount to knit a really adorable dahlia horse hat called Karusellen by Erica-Knits and featured in this month’s Pom Pom Quarterly. It’s three skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter–nest for the main color, tallow (a new BT edition) for the color work.
It’s such a quick knit; in one day, I finished the ribbing and color work portion and I’m not onto shaping the crown.
