Okay! Change of plan - I was getting frustrated by my LYS' trying to find a yarn like that in the Blue Hills pattern. Soooo, I've decided to knit the Viking Chicken Hat!
No, this does not mean I'm now knitting for Norway.
It does however mean I'll be tackling a project dear to my heart, if not that of my nephew's mother, and be fulfilling a dream of mine - which, after all, is what the Olympics are about, right? Reaching for one's dreams.
The yarn is in hand - I stopped by Circles today. Folks are real nice. I may have my DH drop me off there Sundays for the KnB!
