I have been road testing my new hat – the Reminisce Hat by Libby of Truly Myrtle. It was one of those projects that I cast on, knit up the first handful of rows and then rip them out about 4 times. But once I got going it went very smoothly. I think I’ll get a lot of use out of this hat over the winter – it is still mostly autumn-like here but I can feel the temperatures dropping almost by the day.
The Reminisce is a lovely pattern and I really like the yarn which is Llama Una by Mirasol bought from Meadow Yarn (such a lovely online shop. I tend to look there first before checking anywhere else when I’m on the hunt for yarn). I’d definitely recommend baby llama for knitting hats – very soft indeed! I’m tempted to make another Reminisce but think I should concentrate on finishing other projects first. I had to buy two skeins (I did hesitate and wonder if I could get away with just the one but I made the right decision in buying the second) and still have quite a lot of the second left, so I think I’ll try to make a simple beanie for Angus some time before the end of winter – maybe with a stripe or two of some other leftovers. He wouldn’t like anything too bright but if I keep it fairly subtle I think he’d be happy.

How are you? Have these gorgeous autumn days been easing you in gently too? I do hope so. I was a little shocked last night at how quickly it became dark……..I think that will take a little getting used to now that the clocks have gone back for winter.
