Hey, we got over two feet of snow north of Boston.
And in honor of the Blizzard of "05, I have a new hat.
(Can you tell that somebody hasn’t been sleeping much since she got a new wheel?)
In Dale Sisik, from Dalegarn #130. This is a terrific pattern for handspinners. You knit the headband until it fits, graft it together, and then pickup stitches (remember, 3 stitches for every 4 rows) and follow the very easy shaping. I must remember this for the someday I make a presentable worsted size yarn.
Later: To answer Emma’s question: this is the current version of the green and turquoise thing in the picture above, the Four Corners Hat from winter 2000 Knitters that I think is now available from Cabin Fever patterns.
I am suddenly an html idiot. Sorry this post is so messy: I can’t get typepad to cooperate with me today.
