The Hats Keep Rolling Off The Needles

But soon will be winding down, I promise...

Tonight I finished the Representative Robert Hurt (R)VA hat:

Yes. I agree. It's large. I made it exactly to the pattern, but last night as I worked on it during Knitting Guild Meeting, I said, "Wow this looks large." Poor Karen. She does have eyes...but not wearing this hat!

Once it was off the needles, I immediately began Representative Lowey's hat:

I decided to use a pattern I'm very familiar with. I think I've made 4 Coronets but this is a first in such a soft yarn (in the past I've used Peace Fleece). I love this cable, and am hoping I can work on it during an out of town business trip (the boss is driving!) tomorrow. We'll see if I can remember the 8 row pattern well enough to not have to rip. (I do tend to get confused when I'm not concentrating).

Anyway, this gorgeous eggplant color of Bernat Alpaca is scrumptious.

I might have to think about a sweater in this yarn for me!

You definitely should! That's some lovely yarn, and you deserve a sweater after all of these hats :)

That eggplant is pretty; it would make a lovely sweater.

That's the very pattern I just made for my MIL's chemo cap. Simple and elegant and easy to make to fit.

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
