Remember this? I knit a hat, I loved every stitch, but my head is too big. (As is every head in my family).
So, I decided it had to be sent to a well loved individual.
Meet Amy. A fabulous nurse, and a stellar friend. I met this woman when we were about 8 years old at camp, and our paths just kept crossing after that.
This dear girl has recently embarked on an already impressive knitting career of her own, so I felt that it was appropriate that she have a hand knit hat of her own. You know... it's a kind of 'evangelism' amongst knitters.
Stranger- "Ooooooh. I love your hat. Where did you get it?"
Person wearing handknit hat- "Thaaaaanks. I made it/someone made it for me."
Now if that won't get the world knitting- what will?
For those that missed the previous post about this creation, here are the details.
Pattern- Koolhaas by Jared Flood
Yarn- Naturally Harmony 10 ply
Needles- 4mm (brim) and 5mm (crown) 50 cm circulars
Oh, and in case you were wondering.
Yes. We were doing a photo shoot in the Sears parking lot.
