rose hill

One,
two, 
three,
four.  I declare a rose hill war.  Well, not really.  I am going to let my friends choose among themselves.  The top three are made with Classic Elites Portland tweed, left over from the Christmas sweaters.  The bottom one is made out of Classic Elite's Skye tweed, left over from last years sweaters.  If you recall, I mentioned that Portland tweed replaced Skye tweed.
I have seven balls left from last years sweaters.  I know I will not get around to using them. (I'm sticking true to Portland tweed.  It is so nice.) If you would like a ball, or two, leave me a comment, and then shoot on over and e-mail me with your address. (My address is in the sidebar.  This isn't a drawing.  Just a giveaway to the first people who want them.)  I will pop it in the mail, and you can make yourself or someone a hat.  Well, you don't have to use it to make a hat.........but they are pretty darn cute.
Have a wonderful weekend!

I haven't even checked my google reader in over a week, haven't been on flickr, etc... but I was just thinking how I don't have any tweedy yarns and that's really a shame, and maybe my malabrigo fixation needs a break, etc etc etc. and then i wandered over here and there you are, giving pretty things away! Amazing! Your hats are so cute, too. I can understand why you made four of them.

I'll take one! Thank you! Your hats are darling! One of my hopes for the new year is to learn to knit something more than scarves! :)

I love this post (actually I love all your posts which is why you're on my regular read list :-) ...and I don't want any yarn...I have a skein of malabrigo worsted waiting to be knitted into a hat for my daughter for christmas - was going to make foliage (from knitty) but this might be a better option because it looks fast...and cute!

MadMad said...

Great post! Love all the hats and the photo set up. Please don't send me any yarn, though - I don't need any distractions from my ruffle coat thingy that is also your fault. It is next in my cue after xmas, and I can't wait!

kim said...

Really cute! I have no idea where you find time...

Cary said...

Please emater me, thank you!

Kathy said...

Lovely hats... and, does anybody tell you that you are really a great photographer???

Merry Christmas!

TLCknits said...

Hey Leslie - I have some portland here.. Is one ball enough for the hat?

Jodi said...

Oh, they're so cute! You have some very lucky friends.

BTW, there's pretty much no chance I'll be done with my Advent calendar in time. Sigh...

mozilla said...

Great job on the hat assembly line! Love the dusty rose color!

Sarah Jackson said...

Adore the hats and sad that I didn't pop over here yesterday. You look great in all of them!

sewstylish said...

Oh great hats and I would have loved the yarn too but there's 46 people before me so I'm sure I'm out of luck but how thoughtful of you share. As always a treat to pop in and see what your up too.

Denise said...

poop! I'm way too late for the yarn, but how generous of you to give it away. I really need to try and order some of that tweed, I'm dying to knit with it (patiently waiting for your Libby pattern) ;-)

Jess said...

The hats look awesome. I love the pictures all in a row. Neat!

amandajean said...

you know, I already commented on this post, but I forgot to mention that I love your idea for letting your friends pick their color of hat. i was thinking of doing same thing...let my friends pick which color of hand warmers they wanted. it's just too hard to choose colors for someone else.

karenjane said...

oh those hats look so cozy and warm, your bound to have some very happy recipients!!!

Prairie Girl said...

what a cute hat pattern - I'm going to put that on my New Year knit list!

Merry Christmas to you and yours

Yarn It said...

Well, I am sure the yarn is spoken for but I LOVE the hat! So cute. No doubt I will make a couple.

Vonnie said...

What a cute pattern! And you wear it so well, I'm jealous :D I look like an eejit with pretty delicate hats so I don't even try anymore for myself! I might attempt it for my sister though.

Mandi said...

You are so clever and generous! It took me a minute to realize the hats were different. Insomnia will do that to you! Happy Holidays to you!

stitching under oaks said...

All four of them are so great! How could someone possibly choose? You did a wonderful job! I know your friends will love them! This pattern has now moved to the top of my list of must knits!

Kimberly said...

Oh I love the green...your friends will love you! Now if I can just find a friend that will knit for ME! Lol...it's always the way, we the knitters knitting for others & wishing that just ONCE someone would knit alittle something for them. Happy Holidays! As always your blog is beautiful~

Philigry said...

TrishH said...

I LOVE this hat! I have a bunch of Skye Tweed in Spruce...I'll have to stashbust and make some of 'em!

KeanaLee said...

I'll take the pink one, crap, am I not on the list. LOL They all look great!

Seanna Lea said...

I love tweedy yarns! I'll have to get some of the Portland Tweed for one of my next sweaters. Most of the books I have suggest Skye Tweed. Too bad yarns discontinue so fast!

ali said...

You knit 4 hats with bobbles? Lucky friends!

Take care & happy knitting!

Stitching At Stone Cottage said...

Nicki Lundeen said...

I would love to try a ball of this yarn - but I am sure they are all gone...story of my life...a day late and dollar short. But, thanks for the generous offer. If by chance I got in on time...I can supply you with my address. Happiest of Holidays to you!

Gretchen said...

Awesome post! Love the hats

Cindy Evans said...

I would love to have a ball of that beautiful yarn. I am in a hat phase and that is the best hat ever.

JL said...

Hey, m i too late for it ? I would love to have a ball or two or can help me get more (i trust your choice of yarn and colours). We can work out the payment, by Paypal ? Wanting to knit your Libby's sweater using this yarn (cant get the yarn here)

The yarn(silk n wool blend) which i used to knit hats, scarfs and gloves for the winter holiday in Korea is not warm enough. I m getting ready to knit for our next winter trip.

Carrie said...

Cute! Love them!

Anonymous said...

Hi! I'm probably too late, but I would love to make a hat with one of these. I have just gotten back into knitting the last year, but the closest yarn store is 2.5 hours away! Your hats are adorable.
connally@camelliacom.com
p.s. yes, that's 2 coms

Suzanne said...

I love your leather bracelet. Any chance you can tell us where you got it? My birthday is coming up and I'm giving my husband gift ideas. Thanks!

a friend to knit with said...

hi suzanne.......i have no other way to respond to you but here. i sure hope you see this.
that bracelet was a gift to me from a friend.......and she purchased it on the street......in some other country........for um 10 dollars! i know. and if she would have bought a dozen, she could have made a pretty penny.
happy birthday!

The Litter Box House said...

These hats are so cute. I love seeing the same pattern over and over again in different colors. Through the Loops does it all the time and I wish I had the patience. But I tend to not want to make anything a second time unless someone wants a copy for a gift. Otherwise I'm too lazy!
