hi all, thanks for your lovely comments on my blog over the last few posts! unfortunately i’m a bit backlogged in my responses, but i’ll get there :)
on to business. currently almost all of the projects from the book are at my local yarn store in preparation for the book release party. yesterday, during knitting group, christine convinced me to send it out as a trunk show. so this is a call for yarn stores. if you would like to see the knits from this book and are a yarn store owner or a person who has a fabulous local yarn store that just needs this trunk show, please feel free to be in touch and we’ll see if we can make it happen. this will be a show that is more likely to sell books than yarn, but i will include yarn substitutions for my own hand dyed and handspun yarns wherever i can.
i call these root vegetable shaped hats the hat that started it all… they are by far my most asked for pattern and one of my first ‘designs’ perhaps? all variations that i do come from playing with needle sizes from 7-9, changing yarns and changing the number of increases. there is also a flat top variation
and a pointy worsted variation
both in the book
