The recent bombing horror at the Boston Marathon has prompted many small businesses to donate portions of their sales to The One Fund Boston, which was set up to benefit victims of the bombing. Dirty Water DyeWorks has created two, exclusive colorways (Boston and Strong) representing the Boston Marathon colors. The yarn is Lillian, a gorgeous 100% Superwash Merino. In this same American spirit, I created the Boston Strong hat pattern and will donate all proceeds from sales of it to The One Fund Boston. As soon as I finish knitting my hat, I'll add a photo... Thank you for taking part! GAUGE 32 sts and 32 rounds = 4 inches PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Dirty Water DyeWorks Lillian COLORWAY Boston and strong

I love everything about knitting...knitting itself, designing and now, creating yarn for you to use when working my patterns. Let me customize the blend and colorways you want: Some people see a gorgeous sunset and photograph it. Others paint it. I knit it. Fiber and fabric are my media. Knitting the sunset makes it mine.
