Pat's Knitting and Quilting
December 19, 2007
On Saturday morning, I was perusing my bloglines feeds and stopped in my tracks when I got to Kirsten's blog - Through the Loops - always a source of inspiration for me! She had JUST generously made her pattern for Thorpe available to all of us as a wonderful holiday gift. I had been looking for the perfect plain basic earflap hat for Dave and this was it! I immediately cast on and finished it that night, adding the edging and braid Sunday morning at breakfast.
I used leftover (from these mittens) Elann Peruvian Baby Cashmere (tripled) for the edging and braid and used every inch of it up - I feel so virtuous - not one tiny bit left over!
Cam's latest creation!
With family arriving in 2 days and a list of things I need to do that goes on and on (and somehow doesn't include blogging or knitting), I'm guessing I won't be back until after Christmas .....so have a merry one!
