I've been knitting like crazy but can't show you much - samples that are secret until they are published, and presents that are secret until Christmas. I've been wanting to show you all the fun but I just can't yet! But finally, a little something for you. It's been a while since I've had the inspiration and time to put together my own pattern. I'm so excited about this hat! I hope you like it too...
I've been teaching the beginning knitting class at my local yarn shop and approached the owner about a new pattern to teach - the last one was cute but has been on the schedule for a year or more. She requested slipped stitch colorwork and I thought that was a great suggestion. It's a little slouchy to keep you extra warm, not to mention stylish. An i-cord is woven through the eyelets around the bottom allowing you to adjust the size, and finishes with a bow in the back. My sister was in town this week so I took the opportunity to catch one of my favorite models!
I've also knit up some cabled mittens but not sure what I'm going to do with that pattern just yet. I hope to have the Addison Hat pattern published within the next seven days - I'll let you know!
