Twin Boston Whalers
I finished knitting a second hat from the Ella Rae Bamboo Silk in the Boston Whaler pattern. They are for a set of girl twins. Ella Rae Bamboo Silk has just enough yarn in the skeins to make two Fair Isle baby hats (with the plum as the background in one, and the pewter as the background in the other).
I ended up enjoying the reverse colors in the second hat more than I thought I would. I would definitely get Ella Rae to knit baby hats again. It would also make a wonderful hat for an adult. Also, Heather Walpole's pattern is easy to work with. I'm going to experiment with substituting a different fair isle pattern in the stitch repeat.
