Details (coz I know you'll ask).
Wool - Self striping from stash, both blues, gifted to me - Swans Island - American merino wool.
Pattern - My slightly squiffy version from a delightful book called Nordic Knitting Traditions which I'd found in a seconds bookshop in Hebden Bridge for a very nice price :)
Confessions - I was fine with the pattern - No - I was AbSOLuteLY besotted with the pattern, the knit just grew off my circular needles while I was on holiday and I kept having to show off to Himself as it developed. A slight hiccup occurred on the journey home from our jollies and I missed out a row, despite several froggings and repeat knittings, I just completely lost my way, so I just made a speckledy section as I reduced the stitches to finish off the crown. Although not the correct finish, I am I have to say rather happy - happy enough to burst!
HaPpy HAppy HAPPY ME!
