Ok, I've behaved myself until now, but I can't hold it in any longer. Can I ask what the gauge is on these hats you've been making? Ballpark? Range?

The hats run 5 to 7 stitches per inch in stockinette, depending on the yarn. Compared to lace shawls, they're really quick knits :) Unfortunately, since they're not in machine washable yarns, I can't do them for any of the charity programs.


I like your hats very much, when you said you use 3ply is this equal to bulky? And another question, do you have the pattern for the "Pasque Flower Shawl"? where did you find it? and your "Keesmere cape" do you also have a pattern? I love your creations, they are unique in beauty.


What a great name for that hat!! It's gorgeous. The color even makes it look warm! Sounds like you got some of the weather that's in the news this AM.


What a bright, pretty hat! Sure won't lose them! And it looks like it could cure the "not another snowfall" blues.

    A collection of knitted lace shawls, stoles and wimples. Many were done in handspun yarn. Click on an image for a larger picture and description, plus charts for some.

Socks and small knits

  • Keesmere Ski Hat
    These are all handknitted socks and other small items. Most of these were knitted from my own handspun yarn. Click on an image for a larger picture and description, plus charts for some.

    (Most of the Celtic designs came from Celtic Charted Designs by Co Spinhoven, an excellent and inexpensive resource.)

  • Infant's Aran pullover
    Back in the dark ages (as in pre-1987), I used to knit sweaters. Nowadays, I rarely do, so I'll use this album to record some of what I have done and may yet to be.

Blankets and woven items
