here is a shot of the seedflap hat in action. to refresh your memory, this is a very slightly modified version of the kitty hat (sans ears) made in malabrigo pure worsted merino. i wont bore you with details for the third or fourth time... check out the archives for those.
coffee and handknit garments... pretty great way to spend your day, no?
next up is the Nautilus I (i made 2 this christmas). Version I has a 2x2 rib around the the base and turned out great. The 2nd one I did had a roll-brim as per my mother's request and didn't turn out as well as I would have liked. but i think thats mostly because i am extremely anti-rollbrim.
the decreases on the crown really set this hat pattern apart from the rest...
materials: misti baby alpaca "worsted" in white
needles: US 6 takumi clover bamboo 16" circs
pattern: nautilus hat by marnie maclean
theres more to come... so stay tuned! i had promised a few of you photos of the GANOMY hat being modelled by the recipient. he left it in philadelphia last weekend at his parents house but it should be coming back up to the city on friday and i plan on delivering the goods soon after...
