Strange combination? No, I am not cooking with these ingredients. These are the names of the colors of Lion Brand's new yarn, Alpine Wool Yarn. A while ago, I had the opportunity to knit some samples for Lion Brand with this new yarn. It's a soft 100% Wool Roving Yarn, single ply, that comes in these rich and deep colors. The bulky weight makes it perfect for quick knits.The first hat was made with Vanilla, Bay Leaf and Cinnamon.
The second hat was made with Olive, Blueberry and Chili.Hats may be the last thing you would think of knitting during this Summer heat, but it's never too soon to prepare for Fall and Winter. The hat has a wide brim that folds up, so it's perfect for those cold windy days where you can pull the brim over your ears. In anticipation of Fall and Winter, I am already day dreaming about knitting sweaters. Are any of you thinking about Fall and Winter Knits?
