O Tannenbaum!

Rather than work on some of the duller knitting projects I have lurking around, I started on a fun new hat - Tannenbaum. The pattern is available here and Deb has even started a knit-along.

What a fun knit! I'm using Louet Gems Opal Merino. The color is calledd charcoal but it looks like a dark gray/green to me. Definitely the color of an actual tree. Its a bit thicker than the Lorna's, so I began by casting on 114 stitches and working as directed for the second row of branches. I have a great variety of beads from Fun2Bead (6th and 38th for those of you in the NY area) and even a few little bells. This was the best picture I could get...

Hey, it's looking great! (Of course, I may be considered by some to be biased, but . . . nah!)

Very cute, Ohh I love that store (although my favorite is phoenix beads on 37th off of 5th) I am as much a bead addict as I am a fiber freak!
