I've Moved to a Brand New Website!

My poor little blog has been in need of an update for quite some time now. 
Finally I have a fresh, sparkly new website complete with a new online store and I couldn't be more excited about it!

Please click HERE to view my new site!

This will be my last post on this tired old blog, so please update your RSS feeds, and update your bookmarks so you don't miss a thing! :)

The new website can be found at nevernotknitting.com.

Thank you for reading! 



I recently found myself jumping on the knitting bandwagon with this irresistible knit!
I tried to resist it. I really did.. but adorable versions kept popping up all over the net. 
What was I supposed to do?

The Baa-ble hat pattern is so addictive with that row of fair-isle sheep. Once I cast on I couldn't put it down. This hat was completed in no time at all. 

I knit my Baa-ble hat in Quince and Co. Osprey in colors Storm and Honey and used up some small amounts of stashed cream and dark brown yarn for the sheep.

I modified the original design just a bit by making a shorter ribbed brim. I didn't want to wear mine folded up. I also didn't include that pom-pom at the top.

This pattern is free of charge and can be downloaded HERE.

You know you want one too!
