The hat started out as some Merino roving I found at the Worldwide Knit in Public day in Montgomery, Alabama. I had been looking for this colorway for weeks...turquoise, lime and white. A colorway that would lure you to the tropics. Thanks to Beth at WhorlingTides, I was able to do just that with my size 8 circulars. I think Beth was lured to that tropical place as she spun this because she added some silk and firestar glitz to it to give it a subtle shimmer...just enough to give the yarn interest. The yarn turned out brilliant and the hat is beautiful.
