    Those hats! They look so soft and I didn’t notice the sparkle till I looked close. It’s not overwhelming but just right! I’m sure you’re so glad you got it! But my favorite is that luscious red Yarn! I’ve been trying to decide on yarn for my next sweater and that is definitely going to be it. It is gorgeous. And, drumroll, I’ve cast on the Rye Light socks and can’t wait to get going on them, just finishing a Fisherman’s Rib sweater, on the last sleeve. That Rib sure takes forever!

    I love the barley hat pattern and have made countless both for family and charity gifts. Such an easy knit with beautiful results every time.

    Of course you just need to give in and buy the sparkly yarn, a girl has just got to play sometimes! Cute hats, adorable little one!

    The Barley Hat is my go to for cruise knitting. Every cruise I take, I make at least 2 or 3 and leave them with crew members.
