Crooked Tannenbaum

Hmm...what's that?

Welcome to my last FO in the State of NC! *happy dance*

Crooked Tannenbaum
Hey...I spy a fence, not my fence, but my neighbor's which withstood the tornado despite our tree landing on it ;) We took ours completely down and when I went to take my FO shots, there it was!


In like 100 degree weather...
The things I do in almost 100 degree weather...model a wool hat!  Good thing it has some lacy parts to it.
I knit this as part of the MadMay KAL on Ravelry. It took all month, but hey, I've been a wee bit busy this month ;)
Crooked Tannenbaum.....
Crooked Paths by Melissa LaBarre
Madelinetosh MCN Worsted - Tannenbaum Colorway (this is her Etsy store which she debuts her new base and colorway lines.)
US 5 & 7 circulars.

No mods used, easy to knit by the chart even in my movingfriedbrain!  Have about 1/4 skein left and another entire skein so hoping for a cowl and maybe some mitts...stay tuned!

In a few hours the movers will be here...then t-11 days and we'll be on our way outta here!

ETA: the modeled shots are the true color, the red mulch makes it hard to make the green show up...hmmm
