Bits and Pieces !!!

These are some of the things I have knitted over the holidays for my friends and family.

Project info
Pattern: Hemlock Flower Tam by Robyn Wade Craft
Needles: US 7 / 4.5 mm, US 5 / 3.75 mm and US 6 / 4.0 mm
Yarn: Forsell Touch of Silk Cone Aran
Amt Used: 175.0 yards (160.0m)
The yarn I used was thicker than the yarn the pattern suggest so I started with the larger needle and graded down to the smaller one for the rib section of the hat.
I think it's a very pretty hat will make one for myself.
