The Hat

OK, folks. The unveiling of my new pattern. Or the results thereof. It’s a Retro Fulled Cloche.
First , a picture that my crazy camera did not allow to turn out well.

And here is a better picture, showing the cables in the top of the hat. This is after my experimentation with the camera.

Please let me know what you think.  I will also be uploading a PDF of an illusion knit chart for a bat.  Should have that up soon.


Help needed . . .

OK, so I am close to finishing up my pattern template, and can have a second mockup of a hat done and will need test knitter volunteers to make sure someone else besides me can understand my directions.  You’ll get wool yarn of your choice (it’s felted) and a copy of the pattern.  You’ll need to have time to knit this, its a fairly simple pattern, within say, 1 month, and to email me your comments/pictures/problems so I can edit and change where necessary.  Leave me a comment if you’re interested, with your email, and I’ll contact you privately about it.  You will probably also get a goodie of some sort with the yarn.
PS – WordPress, this is a call for a volunteer, not marketing.  No money will exchange hands.  Thanks.

I have some pictures to post tonight.  Of the snow a few days ago, and my pair of Fetching modified which should be finished tomorrow!  Woo hoooo! And it is almost Friday, and not just any Friday!  Its one of our allowance paydays, so I get fantastic money tomorrow that I can spend.  Maybe get a knitting pattern book, a pair of shoes and maybe some more yarn.  We’ll see!
