FO Friday: More Hats!

I finished two more hats recently! The first one was a project from the first issue of making magazine, the Wildflowers cap by Mary Jane Mucklestone. I used 2 skeins of Naturally Nazareth from Kraemer Yarns, which is a rustic, heathery wool yarn spun with domestically sourced fibers. I've talked a little more about the Kraemer yarn story here; long story short: this is a really lovely yarn that is made in the USA.
On the other end of the spectrum, I had a skein of Preciosa from Knit Picks that I used to knit a free pattern by Liz Abinante, the Thistle hat. This was a squishy 100% Merino single ply that was quite reminiscent of Malabrigo, though it's not spun in Uruguay (the label says it's spun in Peru, which is where a lot of their yarns are made). I chose the Anemone colorway since it's pretty much the complete opposite of what I normally opt to knit with:
Thanks for stopping by, have a fun & crafty weekend!
