Sometimes I need a project that doesn’t require any thinking. Right now that project is the Lorne’s Hat pattern which requires 11 inches of 2×2 ribbing before decreasing for the crown. My ears are always cold and never quite covered by my hat so this time I am going to be VERY sure it’s long enough. I’m knitting this with the bison yarn I bought at Rhinebeck last fall. It should be exceptionally warm.
