Week # 5 of 16 of suggested projects:

Easy Ombre Slouch Hat

I love soft, squishy yarns in beautiful colors.  If you do also then you might want to give Mirasol's Llama Una a try.  We knit a free pattern called the "Easy Ombre Slouch Hat"  in blue and grey and the result may actually convince me to wear a hat this year - and that's saying something!.  The pattern can be found on Ravelry.com or on the Knitting Fever Inc. (distributor of Mirasol Yarns) website.  

While we're on the topic of Mirasol Yarns, did you know that for each luxurious skein you buy you are helping to support the children of Peruvian alpaca shepherds? A portion of every purchase is dedicated directly to funding a school in the remote area of Munani in the region of Puno to educate the children of the shepherds (visit www.mirasolperu.com) and to combat the extreme poverty these children face.  Makes me want to buy even more!
