Notes

After so much grey and natural tones spinning and knitting I just _had_ to have something to cheer me up and embrace spring - which finally arrived over here :)

Colourway is called goldfish pond - what else to go to when looking for something to knit Knitty’s fish hat?

Slightly thinner than what I was aiming for (a DK) but reasonably close given that it is a navajo-ply and bloomed while washing which at least for me is difficult to judge upfront.

450m pre-wash/390m post-wash, roughly 12 wpi

After swatching it felt too thin/elastic for a really warm hat. Navajo-plied a second time.
