I went to the LYS yesterday afternoon just to check out some yarns and, as usual, came away with several skeins of Rowan Big Wool in numerous colors. I also bought the new Rowan pattern book Bigger Picture, which features designs made with Big Wool and Biggy Print. I absolutely fell in love with the Big Wool. It knits up into this gorgeous chunky fabric. I really dig the look you get with this hat being knit sideways. It was so fun to knit that I also started a pair of mittens and am in the process of finishing up the second one. It's so great to be able to finish up a project in an hour. What gratification! I see about four or five other patterns I would love to make.
