I got a new shell to wear in Iceland and decided that i wanted a hat to match. You will come to learn that i'm all about matching! At any rate, I got an Arc'Teryx Gore-tex shell and a Patagonia Nano Puff as a liner. All purchased at The Trail House (link) in downtown Frederick, Maryland. Big thumbs up to that outdoor store!
This weekend I checked out Yarnability (link) in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. They had the perfect yarn to match my shell. Needless to say, I made a purchase and got to knitting. I had the hat finished by early afternoon today. I think it needs some buttons or a pin to be completely finished, but I'm very happy with how it turned out.
Things are slowly coming together for the big trip! I can't wait!!
