A hat w/a pattern



A first time patterned hat that I made. Someone had started this project and after the first few rows gave up and passed it on. fortunately with a picture of the finished hat and a pattern to follow. I can't believe it worked! I am so proud of it and my friend Tina gets it for her bday. (I was actually knitting it at the birthday party and made her try on the half-made hat to see if it fit. Fortunately, she's a good sport!) All in all, I was happy with the results and now will try another. For her party I also made a flourless chocolate cake, so rich that a small sliver is plenty. Here's the photo: My two loves: Baking and Knitting!

Oh my! Chocolate decadence and knitting, too. I'd definately need a pot of tea with that.

Mmmm ... chocolate!!!! And that hat is so beautiful.

Better yet - I wanted to let you know that there was a tie for the contest (the who knit/sent the most items) at Warm Up Winchester .... you and Carmen are the winners!

I'm spliting up the gift card ($15 each), but I need to know if you want it for KnitPicks, Michaels, or JoAnn Fabrics! Drop me an email and let me know.
