Variegated Yarn Woes.

Using the second skein of yarn from the Iowa Sheep and Wool Festival, I knit a second hat using the same pattern.

Again, I had my concerns about variegated yarn. And honestly, this one had some pooling issues. But I kept on knitting, and luckily, the lighter yellows created a swirling pattern that isn't as irritating in the finished product as I feared it would be.

Again, there's quite a bit of yarn left. I'm thinking that a slipped type stitch will help with the variegated issues, so I will try again for a second hat. But for now, I'm going to take a brief break from hat knitting.
