Pattern: Hermione Hearts Ron by Christy Aylesworth
Yarn: The Verdant Gryphon Bugga! in Devil's Flower Mantis
Comments: I love this pattern - I made no modifications. The hat is a tad small for my big head. Maybe, I just don't like beanies...or maybe, I just don't like hats. Well, I like the concept and the look of hats - just not on my head. The yarn is fabulous. I'm so sorry that both girls (the Sanguine Gryphon partnership split into The Verdant Gryphon and Cephalopod Yarns several years ago) have given up dyeing. The Bugga! base is so yummy and their colors are beautiful.
Anyway, I will likely make this pattern again.
Pattern: Pome by Agata Smektala
Yarn: Malabrigo Rios in Lettuce
Comments: I ended up knitting two-and-half repeats of the pattern. I think it turned out well. The yarn is yummy and that color is fabu. I may have to rethink the wearing hats philosophy.
