It would make more sense for me to get out my BW books and make myself a hat like your one from your cable-brimmed series, rather than just sitting here and turning green with envy.

Um, in other words, I love those hats. Absolutely beautiful, and the qiviut lining is just an elegant touch.


Oh my gawd! A fiber word I had to go look up! qiviut - amazing, is it really from musk-ox? The hat is fabulous. Is the pattern yours or where can I find it?


Love the hat....but I thought you didn't like hats? The outer shell of the hat is what fiber?


First, I just discover your blog, and I found your lace proyects absolutly lovely, I had read your archives since 2003 and I had enjoy them so much! I have so many questions, for example where do you get your 'qiviut yarn'? is it expensive? where did you find your patterns for the 'wimples' or 'neck warmers' I try to download your graphs, with no luck, but I know is because I still do not handle computer well.
Do you create your shawls? like the round small one? Well I had put your weblog as a 'must check' every day, and I look foward for everything you knit!!! Sincerely,

Catherine D.

Valerie, this particular hat is for a friend. I do enjoy making hats, though, because while I know lots of two-face people, I don't know any with two heads :)


So Catherine, have you had enough opportunities to use that new snow blower yet?
