Here is a photo of my friend Nadine, wearing her new turquoise blue hat! She loves warm weather and the beautiful seas, and so this is her favorite color. She looks great in it, don’t you think? I must say that I am quite proud of myself.
I’m itching to start another felted hat, but for now I’m knitting on a long stocking cap that is done in the colors of a “Country Santa” — burgandy and off white. Of course the design has cables in it. I got the pattern last year from KnitPicks, but they don’t seem to carry it anymore. So imagine my heartbreak when I misplaced the pattern! But then Amy from my KnitTalk group sent me her copy. So yay! I can make the hat. I actually started it last year while my dad was in the last stages of his illness, so I couldn’t bring myself to work on it at that time. And when I picked it up again, it seemed too small anyway. I guess it was the stress of the whole thing. So, I frogged and restarted it this year. I’ll get a pic up as soon as I start the red section! Soon, I promise.
