Let’s take a break from my series on Type 1 Diabetes: My Journey. The hat craze continues…two cotton hats, one knitted, the other crocheted. A bit of back story for each of them: the knitted watermelon hat on the right is made from a Susan Anderson free pattern. Susan B. Anderson is one of my favorite knitters/designers/bloggers! Check out all her websites! The hat is intended to be for one of my sister’s daughters who turned three last weekend!
The crocheted hat is a big-sister hat. In the previous hat post I mentioned that the baby hat and blanket is for a friend. She already has a son and daughter who are so excited about their soon-to-be-born baby sister! So, I had five of the inner circles leftover from the blanket. Instead of creating the hexagon shaped final round, I decided to make them square and fashion them into a cute hat for the big sister. Now I’m working on the big-brother hat, omitting the pinks!
I’m also very excited that Knit Wits is starting back up again! This was a group of knitter/crocheters who used to meet at the old location of Shakespeare & Co. in Kernersville. We will begin meeting again on Friday mornings from 10 am to noon. If any of you yarnies out there would like to join us, please do so! Shakespeare & Co. is a wonderful book shop, coffee cafe in a beautiful new location downtown. Our “motto” is taken from a Shakespeare play called Pericles:
“When peers thus knit, a kingdom ever stands.” Yes, indeed!
