Doesn’t that sound like a children’s book?
I was inspired before all the rain started to make an acorn hat – figured it was a good seasonal hat, might be something different for the craft fair – so I stopped in at the Yarn Basket and picked up some wool / acrylic yarn in browns. After some fiddling, I love these hats. I made three this weekend – one small (56st cast on) and two medium (64st cast on) – they are fantastic and I love them! (Ravelry details here)
Lorelai was not feeling the love, and she was not in the mood to model hats for mom’s blog. Hence, this is the best shot:
Blog readers (and unfair market mayhaps because most of you knit, but still) – what would you pay (not charge. Pay.) for a handknit hat like this? I’ve got an idea already, but curious as to what the masses would consider reasonable.
Almost forgot! I plurked this, but how would you like to win two knitting books? Amy, who is a friend through my brother and sister-in-law-to-be, has recently started knitting again (she did a fantastic bag!), blogs for Hallmark, Things We Make – she’s doing a give away – leave her a comment and check out the rest of her blog – she spotlights some fantastic etsy / indie finds!
