My only photo from the snow storm earlier this week. A picture of my knitting thrust up there on the dashboard as we gingerly made our way back to Vermont from Pennsylvania, eager to out run the "Blizzard Conditions!" at our back. Made for a more interesting dental run than the previous ones have been, but all in all it was a fine drive with plenty of time to spare before the snow really started falling here on Tuesday.
I'm linking up with Ginny today because this particular hat is one I want to keep a post on. The knit is loosely based on the pattern found in this issue of "Taproot" and the yarn is composed of scraps which Bear picked out from my stash. What I'm saying gang, is that this is not the type of knitting project people rave about, rather it's the type of handmade knit that purls it's way into my Mama memory.
He loved it so much that he wore it to bed! To bed! And to kindergarten the next day, and the day after that...
Once, I knit a beautiful cashmere scarf for a friend- it had elegant seed stitching throughout.While I know she full appreciated and loved the gift, it wasn't the same kind of enamored response as Bear gave me for this hodge-podge of a hat. A hat, mind you, all his own.
Sending warm, homemade knit wishes to all of you who did not get out of the blizzard as easily as I did.
