mohair blends. light green from the mormon thrift store in salt lake city 80% kid mohair 20% acrylic. the dark green lost its tag a long time ago and was bought out of the sales bin at my favorite yarn store in msla. i've been itching to use these two together for a long time. i was hoping that this hat would be looser, but i'll work on that with the next one. now i know. read on if you want to know why everything i produce is green...
okay. you may think i'm crazy for two reasons... first, i'm producing way too much stuff way too fast, but it is my month off and the only time that i can dedicate a lot of time to designing patterns i'll use the rest of the year (see schmidtly cranking out granny squares, she's in the same boat). plus, i must stock up for next winter's craft fairs etc. the second reason that you may think i'm crazy is that every hat i make is green and it's not because i'm trying to be the most productive craftperson in project spectrum (the green windmill hat was made for color theory craft and project spectrum... but not the others). although there are no commissions/sales on my side of the globe right now (check out that sun!), i've been honored by another flickr craftsperson (in new zealand!) with a trade and she would like a green hat. so, i'm making a bunch for her to pick from.
see, i'm not crazy-just a bit obsessive.
