you or your hat. anonymous
I’ve been making a lot of hats lately. Some more successful than others.
My son says my "Selbu Modern" makes me look like I have a “muffin head.”
I had a blast running around town in my Fair Isle "Fair Isle Sampler Hat" .
How could you not feel like an elf wearing this?
When I wore my Tam to Christmas eve services the usher said “Oh Lynn I almost didn’t recognize you- you look- so French.” He didn’t understand that in my imagination I’m Kate of Needled- literary, interesting, talented, beautiful, petite and Scottish.
The owner of our new LYS, Beyond the Rainforest, liked my tam so much she asked me to lead a Fair Isle workshop next month. Can’t tell you how excited I am about this!
And so I’ve been polishing up my stranded color work .We will be starting off with corrugated ribbing and working a simple headband. My thought – enough stitches to get a rhythm going- not too fiddly like mittens or socks can be.
Coming next a new creation- you start with the headband idea add a top and end up with a hat that reminds me of a Yurt. -yes a Yurt
I’m not quite ready to share the photo yet.
It’ll give you something to look forward to.
Breathes a woman with a soul so dead that never to herself hath said, “I need another hat to adorn my head.”
