This ball of lilac colored yarn below has been in my bin for a few years and is either a Galway or a Sirdar. I really cannot remember. It matches the shawl well enough and will be one of the two hats that I make to coordinate with the shawl.
I've purchased most of my yarns and have even worked on a few projects. I'm knitting with less stress than last year because most of my family and friends have expressed the need for other-than-knitted items this year.
Hooray for that !!!
