Mighty Stitch. I was a little surprised with how much I liked this yarn - it's a blend of 80% acrylic and 20% wool. I sometimes find acrylic yarns really hard to deal with, especially when it comes time to weave in those pesky ends - I feel like they're always popping out! That wasn't an issue here, and I am also quite happy with the overall stitch definition. I'd definitely buy this yarn again, especially for gift projects since it's superwash, not to mention it's a really great value (208 yards for $3.49).
Frog Hat pattern from Knit Simple, and while I would (and most likely will) knit it again, it wasn't the most well-written pattern I've come across. As a fairly experienced knitter, the idiosyncrasies of this pattern didn't throw me, but I feel like a newbie might be flummoxed by the vagueness of some of the instructions. I feel like the tech editor might have phoned it in on this one!
Despite my critique, I'm still very pleased with how the hat turned out and will hopefully get a chance to make a few more hats from this issue for holiday gifting!
