Some say this could never happen...a hat that fits!
They Call Them Pirates is a wonderful pattern by Hello Yarn and as a warm up, before going on to such a detailed pattern, Gina's Skull Hat was just the ticket. I believe the yarn is Cascade 220. I messed up the first part of the pattern, but as it is uniform it just looks like a "design element", heh. Thanks,Gina for sharing the pattern and Dipsy Doodle for leading me to it:)
Klaralund has been sacrificed for Baby Eleanor. I loved knitting Klaralund, but the Michelin tire-look was not my favorite. I was talked into Lady Eleanor by blogless Michelle and after a sputtering start have embraced this fun entrelac project from Pam Allen's Scarf Style The Noro Silk Garden color changes are still thrilling!
Blogless Michelle also gifted me with some Ganpi abaka tape and some pretty Zero Markers.
I also received some vintage beads and lavender sachets from Kim. They will make great stitch markers!
I feel so blessed to have met these wonderful, witty, and talented generous women.
