A Week Later

January 16, 2011

..and this white stuff is still on the ground. This may be the first time in my life I’ve seen snow remain on the ground for an entire week. How do you people who have snow on the ground all winter stand it? And the cold. I am absolutely not accustomed to winter being this cold. 12 degrees is just plain ridiculous unless you are a frozen turkey. I am ready for spring now. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease.

One good thing about being snowed in is that I got lots of knitting time. I am still knitting hats like crazy. They are quick to knit; rather like knitting instant gratification. I am especially enjoying stranded colorwork hats because it is so fun to watch the pattern emerge.

And I have done a lot of pattern writing. I currently have 2 patterns in testing and four for which I am lining up testers. This year has started off with a bang.

Last week, I introduced you to my first pattern of 2011. Today, I would like you to meet the second pattern for 2011.

Dirty Double Crosser

This deceptively simple cabled hat uses an easy-to-memorize cable pattern that is attractive but quick-to- knit. It looks good with the brim rolled up or down. The hat makes a great gift for guys or gals.

Pattern is suitable for advanced beginner to intermediate knitters who can knit in the round, have basic cable experience, knit, purl and work basic decreases. Instructions included for customizable brim length. Pattern includes 2 sizes which fit heads from 20 – 24 inches which will cover larger children through adults. Written and charted instructions included. Available as a download through Ravelry.

    I had to smile when I saw your comments about snow. We live in SW MO. My husband is working in Kansas City. He’s been complaining about the snow they get there. We had snow on the ground several days last week. Since Lowell was in KC all week, I was stranded at home with the kids 3 miles from town. My littlest daughter wanted a sled so much; but, I couldn’t take her to town. Saturday came. We went to town for the wished for sled. There was snow on the ground. When we got home, a couple of hours later, the snow was almost gone! What a disappointment for her! So, the kids and I have been praying for snow. After all, she spent all of her Christmas money on that sled!

    Meanwhile, being stuck at home has resulted in a little more knitting time for me!

    God bless!
