Just in time for my dad's birthday, I finished off this Uhlan Cap (rav link).
I knit it out of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK. I got this yarn when I went to Dublin a few years ago. It was fun to refresh the memories of our trip and to use this yarn for something special. I was only a little disappointed with the yarn because every time I knit with it my fingers turned orange. I haven't ever had this happen with any other color of the cashmerino yarns, so I was a bit surprised by it. Before giving it to my dad I made sure to soak it in vinegar and give it a good wash to remove any of the excess dye.
Here is my dad modeling it for me. Looks like it fits great and will keep him plenty warm on the fishing banks!
Then we had him try it on with the Beardo I knit him for Christmas. I think it looks awesome. With all of these woollens he should definitely stay warm in the great outdoors!
