May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous,
leading to the most amazing view.
May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.
About two weeks ago, fellow artist Margaret Blank included a knit hat among the projects that she had completed in the past week. Now Margaret is a stellar knitter and the hat was a bit unusual. She did an impressive job of knitting it. I immediately fell in love with the hat. I looked up the reference to the pattern that Margaret kindly included in her post. The write-up did not sound too difficult……..and I really liked the hat. So, I ordered the yarn, Knit Picks Swish Worsted, and waited patiently for its arrival.
Well, it came this week and I simply could not focus on anything else. The yarn was absolutely beautiful and so soft to the touch. I simply had to start knitting.
Fortunately, I had brought along my knitting/crochet needles when I moved – all nicely organized in the case I had made from an Indian sari.
I had the required needles, checked my gauge and started knitting……..and couldn’t stop. 😛
I have nowhere near the talent that Margaret does but I am persistent. I admit that my hat is probably not as perfect as the one Margaret made, but I completed it in a few days and I like it!
It was a pleasant break from my class with Elizabeth which is now winding down. I did do some more sketches for that class and expect to be sharing more as I translate my rough sketches into actual art quilts in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, here is my hat!
Linking as usual to Nina Marie’s Off the Wall Friday. Let’s see what everyone else is doing!
