Tam-o-licious

Remember a while back I mentioned that I’d acquired some things at Lettuce Knit last week? Of course you don’t. Nevertheless, here they are:

The yarn is Mission Falls 1824, and I have three balls of it. My friend Tyla bought it, and I’m making her a tam out of it. It’s a wonderful colour, and I’m very much enjoying knitting with it. It doesn’t hurt that it will be very quick.

Tyla also shared the cost of the book, The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns by Ann Budd. It has a section on tams, and allowed me to put together a pattern customised by Tyla in every aspect. I think the book will be very helpful to me, especially in making gifts for children and other people whose sizes are not intuitive to me.
