Notes

Blogged in detail here!

February 19, 2014: So I couldn’t handle the earflaps being different colors. Luckily at the end of the hat I was back to the right color.

Details about how I fixed it are here. :)

February 9, 2014: Stashbuster! Love these colors together.

Unforseen problem: The color changed pretty quickly in my ball of dark purple from the start, so one earflap is a distinctly different color. Then, when you merge all of it together one earflap goes in perfectly, but that other one has a sharp line of color!

Unlikely I’ll come upon this color again in the ball, but if I do, I may cut off the wrong color one and knit downwards to re-do it. We’ll see!
