Leethal adventure knit along. Modelled shots by SpinHeartSpin, on Flickr

This project was an absolute blast.  I had no idea what I was making, simply that I knew I was making a head item. (I could have chosen neck hands or misc as well) And, I got to choose from a lot of different options, I could have ended up with something totally different.
I love what I ended up with, and this being just one of the many options, it's only a little bit of a spoiler if you wanted to get this pattern.  It's Leethals Adventure Knit, and like the choose your own adventure books, you get to choose your own adventure knit. Totally worth it.
Enough words, more pictures!!

I bet the knitting truly was an adventure!

Thank you!  This pattern was very fun. Leethal makes really complex looking patterns really easy with her great pattern writting skills. And I can't believe I knit it in 2 weeks. It's a record for me lol

This is so cool! It's so very textured and warm looking! I'm always so afraid of trying "mystery" patterns because I am so darn picky about what I like to wear. I like the green button with this as well, makes it look earthy!

Thank you both!  I like this adventure knitting, because when I know what I'm making I try to change it.  I wouldn't have known what to change Smiley
