Need your help, quick!

No, not finding the missing skein of Malabrigo. I haven't found it yet, but I'm ignoring it, so I'm sure it will show up soon.

I was going to use the Malabrigo for a Damson Shawl by Ysolda Teague, but in the absence of the yarn, I grabbed some Cascade Heritage I had lying around and have been whipping it up. I would have finished this morning but ran out of yarn 4 rows before the end. Grrrr. Have some now in my hands and will try to finish it by tomorrow.


As I was saying, I need your help! I'm looking for a great tam pattern. Do you have any favorites? I'm heading out of town for a week to Drummond Island, which is located at the tip of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We rent a cabin there each year. I will have lots of time to sit on the deck overlooking Lake Huron and knit happily away watching the sail boats and tankers go by and the kids kayaking and swimming and fishing in the bay. It's my favorite vacation every year. I can't wait, but I need some good knitting to take.

Help!!! Please!!!

How about Selbu Modern? It's free, pretty and really fun to knit.

Darn! I hoped you would have found that pesky skein by now.

Knitting by a lake - nothing better. Have a great vacation!

I might be too late to help, but Sirdar has a great winter glamour pamphlet (339) out with wonderful tams in it...It uses the yarn click chunky and I want to knit everything in it. Have fun on your week away. Here's a peek at the patterns.

Is a tam the same as a beret? I usually class them as one, not sure I can recommend any though, I've only really knit the Cabled Beret which I did like, but it was on straight needles, I'd prefer a pattern in the round so I'd be looking for something else next time too.
Hope you can find something you like.
