Yarma1Carmel & I took the I Can’t Believe I’m Fair Isle Knitting class at Debbie Macomber’s A Good Yarn Shop with Sheila Joynes in Port Orchard, Washington.  I know, I know, we did that last year.  But I’m telling the story again because Carmels hat needs to go on the new websites projects page.  Also, because it’s boating season again now.yarma_medium2

Now, Sheila is also the designer of the pattern, and it’s called Anchors A Weigh.  Carmel used these fun colors of Cascade Yarns 220 Fingering.  The class was a cowl using worsted weight, but then you pick out yarn for a fingering weight hat of your choice pattern.  This was Carmels choice for the hat and I love it.

yarma3In case you are wondering about my project…..I finished the cowl…..but it ended up being a hat.  I love it actually and wear it a lot in the winter time when we hike.  My hat project isn’t finished yet….must work on it this spring and finish it up.

Also, for those who are new — Carmel is our group moderator over on the America’s Knitting Ravelry Group page.  Carmel has her own blog and she goes by carmelknits!
