Birthday Yarn!

Today is my 23rd birthday, and I treated myself to some yarn to make myself a new winter hat. I’ve put myself on a selfish-yarn diet so I’ve been trying to not buy yarn for projects for myself because I need to use up more of my stash and/or focus on Christmas knits, but it’s my birthday!


The fluffy ball is Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Brush. It’s soooo soft and wonderful. One of my favorite winter hats is made from this yarn, but it doesn’t stay on my head very well now that I have longer hair. The hank in the back is simply Cascade 220. My plan is to do a stranded hat that’s mostly wool with delightfully warm, soft floats of alpaca all over the inside. In my head, this should work our brilliantly.

  7. Happy birthday! I think you were quite restrained in your birthday yarn buying. Stitches West always happens right around my birthday. I’m not restrained.

    1. I’ve heard that restraint and Stitches West are incompatible. I don’t blame you!

  8. Happy belated birthday! birthday yarn is always an awesome treat.
