rose hill

Friday, December 19, 2008

One,
two, 
three,
four.  I declare a rose hill war.  Well, not really.  I am going to let my friends choose among themselves.  The top three are made with Classic Elites Portland tweed, left over from the Christmas sweaters.  The bottom one is made out of Classic Elite's Skye tweed, left over from last years sweaters.  If you recall, I mentioned that Portland tweed replaced Skye tweed.
I have seven balls left from last years sweaters.  I know I will not get around to using them. (I'm sticking true to Portland tweed.  It is so nice.) If you would like a ball, or two, leave me a comment, and then shoot on over and e-mail me with your address. (My address is in the sidebar.  This isn't a drawing.  Just a giveaway to the first people who want them.)  I will pop it in the mail, and you can make yourself or someone a hat.  Well, you don't have to use it to make a hat.........but they are pretty darn cute.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I haven't even checked my google reader in over a week, haven't been on flickr, etc... but I was just thinking how I don't have any tweedy yarns and that's really a shame, and maybe my malabrigo fixation needs a break, etc etc etc. and then i wandered over here and there you are, giving pretty things away! Amazing! Your hats are so cute, too. I can understand why you made four of them.

  46. you know, I already commented on this post, but I forgot to mention that I love your idea for letting your friends pick their color of hat. i was thinking of doing same thing...let my friends pick which color of hand warmers they wanted. it's just too hard to choose colors for someone else.

  65. Hey, m i too late for it ? I would love to have a ball or two or can help me get more (i trust your choice of yarn and colours). We can work out the payment, by Paypal ? Wanting to knit your Libby's sweater using this yarn (cant get the yarn here)

    The yarn(silk n wool blend) which i used to knit hats, scarfs and gloves for the winter holiday in Korea is not warm enough. I m getting ready to knit for our next winter trip.

    that bracelet was a gift to me from a friend.......and she purchased it on the street......in some other country........for um 10 dollars! i know. and if she would have bought a dozen, she could have made a pretty penny.
    happy birthday!

  69. These hats are so cute. I love seeing the same pattern over and over again in different colors. Through the Loops does it all the time and I wish I had the patience. But I tend to not want to make anything a second time unless someone wants a copy for a gift. Otherwise I'm too lazy!
