I agree about the Baa-ble hat. I first noticed and loved it when designer Donna Smith made a baable for a Christmas ornament last year.
When the pattern was released for Shetland Wool week, I ran to my stash and quickly made it. I love it and so does everyone else.

I'm a new listener and have been catching up on the old episodes. This one has got to be my favourite so far. The story was lovely and moving. And I have been wanting to do an MKAL, but haven't found one that really grips me. But what do I happen to be looking for right now? A worsted weight wrap! I will definitely be looking forward to it. Thanks for the great episode!
