More April fun

Halfway through April, and I haven’t told you about the April Single Skein Club package from Twisted…tsk tsk. April just flew in on those blustery March winds, and I forgot!

April’s package centers on a sweet pattern by Portland’s Lee Meredith, also known as Leethal. She is always marvelously inventive, and this month’s package confirms it. This project is customizable to the max.

The yarn is from Imperial Stock Ranch in Shaniko, Oregon; it’s their Native Twist Bulky. This is a single ply, soft spun wool. It’s from the sheep at the ranch, truly a home-grown Oregon product!


You may be wondering how to get from this yarn to the hats pictured in the pattern.
