I adore Claudia

I have finally knit something using colour work. Yep, 2 strands at one time. i know it's a simple pattern, but it was still a big step for me. The hat is for Boy's sister Kate, no idea if it will fi. I may knit about one (considering I have enough yarn) and send this one to my cousin Jackie. Here's the outside:

And the inside:

Everyone in the knitting world knows who Claudia of Wollmeise is. She and I have had two yarn swaps since August. The first time she sent me sock yarn and this time she sent me her worsted weight yarn. I have a huge love of Malabrigo, so this yarn is heavenly! She sent me 3 colours: Farn, Rittersporn, and am kaltan Polar. They are gorgeous!!!

The hat looks great!! You did a great job! The inside looks so tidy. I am EXTREMELY jealous of your yarn swaps with Claudia!!!!!!! Lucky you! I have some Wollmeise in my stash and it is like gold. I would love to feel her worsted weight. I'll get to meet her at the Spring Fling in April. I'm looking forward to that!
