I got the new Vickie Howell “Craft” yarn (by SWTC) and had to try it out right away.
- a mix of organic cotton and “milk fiber”
- dk weight
- SO soft and a really nice twist
actually, its now my favorite cotton yarn!
i totally love it, like way too much…

the above baby hat is from, its called Miss Dashwood by Heather Ramsay, a great pattern, and it worked up perfectly in this yarn. the brim is nice, not too floppy, not too stiff. i used US 5 needles, a fun pattern too, the picot cast-on took a while but still held my interest and the bobble band was a blast to knit.

i did finish the hat, worked it up in like 2 hours, but have to sew the ear flaps on, so more photos coming soon.
