Friday Fantasy Knits - Hat Patterns

© gumbiemama

     Today I planned to start on a new shawl, have my Fall one completed and I ordered the perfect knitpicks yarn for it in fingering weight.  Or so I thought.  I bought a skein of Preciosa Tonal in Bonsai, which is a beautiful midnight green, dark green with bluish notes.  A color that I felt reflected the evergreens of the Christmas holiday, a December hue.

       Unfortunately I ordered the worsted by mistake and since the shipping cost is almost as much as the sale price my hubby suggested I just keep it and then just order what I need (it helps it's Black Friday and all their stuff at KnitPicks is %20 off!).  So here I am with a beautiful skein of worsted and I just want to dream about what I might do with it.  It really was a blessing I didn't get the right yarn, right now.  I'm backlogged on Christmas knitting and I get sidetracked with my shawl of the moment.  So this makes me focus and get caught up this week.

     So here's some possibilities for this worsted skein of yarn.  It's 100 grams and 273 yards and it's a single ply.  I thought I wanted a Beret, but some of the other hats have caught my eye.  But whatever I choose, I'm making myself wait till after I get caught up.
