Union Long Beanie

This spring I got to go to the Carolina Fiber Fest at the NC State Fairgrounds. It was so much fun to wander around such a massive building with only yarn, sheep art, buttons, and spinners. I found Fiber Charmer in a beautiful booth filled with her hand-dyed wool yarn. I purchased Valhalla, a deep, rich, tonal purple. I'm currently knitting a Union Long Beanie by Connie Chang Chinchio from the book "Weekend Hats." I absolutely love the subtle richness to the yarn and seeing the difference that ribbing and lace make with the yarn.

I'll be showing my other purple treasure from the Carolina Fiber Fest once I start a project with it. Happy Knitting!
