Glacier Hat

Brrrrr! The inspiration for this hat came from the yarn itself, obtained in a swap with Counting Mermaids. As I began it, the colors reminded me of the melting summer glaciers in Glacier Lake in the Yukon, pale greens and blues and cloudy whites.

I finished the top and earflaps with Lamb's Pride Bulky in Creme doubled with a sparkly, rickracky yarn called Muench Bella Donna in Teal.

I found a great bead store in NYC, to get some icy looking stone and glass beads to frost the glacial look.

This hat is just begging for a blizzard and aurora borealis.
