I decided to set my own design work aside for these last few weeks in December, needing some last minute and thoughtful gifts. Hats – quick – seemed just right.
I know nothing about hats. I don't wear them and therefore don't understand their fit and form – a perfect opportunity to try out the patterns of another designer whose work I follow, Amy Christoffers of Savory Knitting.
It's nice to let someone else do the thinking for a change and I think I'll defer to Amy for all things hats from this day forward. I've been having a grand time with Lazy Jacks Hat (2 finished above) and Cider Press Set (currently on the needles), all worked in Madelinetosh Vintage wool – another first for me. I'll finish all 4 in plenty of time for our gift giving dinner.
