I have been working on this hat in the spirit of Zimmermania - the Fishtrap Aran hat from Knitter's Almanac. The yarn was purchased at Rhinebeck from Brooks Farm. It is Fourplay, a wool-silk blend. Yummy to knit, but I must say I am not digging the pattern (I know, I know, it is knitworld blasphemy to harsh on an EZ project). It is just a lot of stitch moving on every row and it makes my hands hurt. The good news? It's just a hat so if I got my arse in gear I could theoretically finish it in short order. Sadly, though, it's spent a lot of time languishing on the abandoned project shelf.
