It's a LOT harder to make a hat a day if you have to jettison a whole day's work.
Hometown USA was NOT the right yarn for the Peruvian Earflap Hat pattern.
Like artist David Cole (a la "The Knitting Machine"), I *could* make that hat out of that yarn ... just like I *could* make socks out of dock line... but neither would be very comfy to wear.
I'll have to use the Hometown USA yarn for some other pattern.
I'm ripping the hat out and will make something else with that yarn. I've restarted the hat with Michael's store brand "Loops & Threads" Impeccable Chunky yarn in royal blue. I cannot find a link to that particular yarn on the Michael's web site.
