Wanting to make another hat in my newest design, I found two partial balls of brown cotton yarn. Well, I ran out of brown yarn. Not wanting to add to my growing stash of partial balls/skeins of yarn (and save a trip to the yarn store), I found some black cotton yarn and continued with the hat. The effect was pleasing, at least to me.
I also changed the brim to match the stitch pattern of the crown.
Still working on the pattern - this time with the new brim. If you missed my original post - see it here. I'm still accepting name suggestions for the hat with the originator of the name to receive the pattern as a prize. Post your ideas for the name of this hat to either this post or the original post.
I've finally added a new design to my list of patterns - but I need a name for it.
The brim is very firm and the crown has a nice texture. A few suggestions? All I've come up with is "Textured cap with brim". The entire hat is done non-stop with one strand of Caron Simply Soft yarn. The brim is done in a new technique I just learned that produces a very firm fabric.
I made a preliminary version for each of my three granddaughters (in pink, of course), but this one is the final design - I just need a better name.
I haven't finished the pattern yet, but if your name is selected, I'll send you a copy of the completed pattern for your assistance.
Thanks in advance.
Remember back in January when I broke my ankle? Well, I'm all healed now. I thought you might like to see these x-rays of the healed ankle with screws still installed. The doctor says they can stay unless they bother me. I feel no further affects from the injury or surgery, so I guess I'll keep them.
Well, this is embarrassing - Broken ankle.
The good news is that the motorcycle looks worse. Long story short: someone stopped quickly in front of me and when I hit the brakes, the rear end slid out, and I tumbled off. I was only going around 10-15 miles per hour, but when I stepped off the sliding motorcycle, I broke my left ankle.
