Cave Point Hat Knit-Along

Today is the starting day for the Cave Point Hat Knit-Along (KAL) from the Midwestern Knits book. I am leading a group of knitters on Ravelry. You can join the group and follow along here, or I will post updates on my blog.

So far, several of us have shared yarn and yarn color choices, swatched and readied our needles. I have a lovely duo of yarns from Sara Gresbach, the creator of the hat pattern. She dyes yarn and sells it through her Etsy portal, Front Porch Fibers.

I chose the colors to go with my new tweed gloves from last year.

This is lace weight yarn -- very thin and quite light.

I wound the contrast color yarn on my nostepinne of a finger...

And, I wound the main color my normal way.

Here they are, ready to go!

Anyone joining me?
