The Snail Hat, and my Uncle's Garden

Pattern: Snail Hat
Yarn: Beaverslide Worsted
Needles: Size 7 straight needles.
Mods: 3 needle bindoff cast-on and last row. The arrow shows the join row.
Comments: One more row of stockinette and reverse stockinette stitches would have made a better fitting hat, I think.

My uncle has always had a wonderful garden. His current upgrade is to add to his mosaics. He is tiling the rocky foundation of his house and adding tiles to his entry way and garden stairs. It is a wonderful space.
My Uncle's Garden
It also just happens to have a very great view of Diamond Head and Waikiki.

Cute hat!
Is this the uncle you went to Japan with? Nice garden pix.
I add Diamond Head to the list of things that always give me a little thrill when I see it.

I love those mosaic tiles. Does he do those himself?

That is such a beautiful garden your uncle cultivates! I really love the whole tiled thing--are those premade tiles or is he doing all that himself?! Wow what an artist!
