Odessa is Finished!!!


A delightful and satisfying knit! That is my description of this project using Rowan's Kid Classic yarn and some purplish beads taken from my bead stash.The yarn is composed of lambswool and a bit of mohair...lovely to touch and very warm. Today is going to be in the 20's and a hat like this will keep me warm.

DH has been making the charts in the fish world. He's been raising some lovely Gourami in several varieties....blue, pearl and gold.The gold ,Trichogaster trichopterus, is displayed above. Do you know how hard it is to take a pic of a moving fish?

I'm excited to see your finished hat, and it looks fabulous! Would you like it to appear in the gallery?

Just as beautiful as I thought it would be. You certainly know how to pair up beads with yarn. su
