Of course it had to be black... about the only colour I didn't have "in stock" ; )
So while we were at The Wool Shed, I picked up a couple of balls of the only black dk available: Rowan Cashsoft DK. Um - rather more expensive than I expected but she assures me she will wear this "always"!
It was a quick and easy knit and the yarn is super soft and super-drapey: pretty much perfect for this pattern.
There was one other thing she would have liked from our trip to Oyne...
These three crows were circling the ceiling at Touched by Scotland and were, indeed, "awesome".
Sadly, they were also £250 each, so we had to make do with my photos.
ETA: The hat pattern is Norie by the Shetland Trader
