The Swirl Hat: Knit with Never Enough Thyme Yarn

I received a skein of yarn to review. 


I have finished knitting the Swirl Hat.  It is off the needles, ends are woven in, and well, I might have skipped blocking.  (I know, I know.)  Catherine was super excited to model this hat for me.  There are about fifty awesome pictures from our little photo shoot, but I realize that you might not want to see quite that many of my girl, so I tried to limit myself.  (I just love those curls at the ends of her braids!)


This pattern, which is on Ravelry,  was a super easy knit, a great hat pattern for beginners.  I managed to use the magic loop technique, which (in my limited experience) I highly approve of, even if it takes a bit of time to master.  The fun swirl pattern is made with simple increases and decreases in the round, nothing too complicated.  While Catherine looks simply adorable wearing this hat, it does stretch quite nicely to fit me too.


Oh! The Yarn!  I love it.  It's from Never Enough Thyme Yarn on Etsy.  This is one of their lovely fall colorways called "Apple Picking".  (Be sure to favorite their shop and follow them on Facebook-- where they share updates, coupon codes, and even giveaways!)  This yarn was hand dyed beautifully.  The colors really characterize autumn, don't you agree?  It works up very nicely.  It's soft and wonderful to wear.  Overall, just a great yarn.


I love to share my projects at various parties, like these and at the Fine Craft Guild.  
It would be so awesome if you would follow me!
