At The Knitting GarageAlthough nobody came for my Sun Hat class last Saturday, the pattern has become quite popular and we sold a few copies at the store. I am looking forward to see more of these hats knitted up. It really is a great grand hat and I am happy to be wearing mine since I took it out of the window and replaced it with the T-shirt we will be knitting up this Saturday. If you are interested in this class, sign up today or walk in for the class Saturday morning. And don't forget: Next Tuesday I will be starting a beginners knitting class.
Store sampleThe store sample is half way done ; probably in another week or two all will be revealed.
At HomeFor now I will simply call the WIP "Indocine" after the yarn which I am using. I have another name in mind and will use that when the pattern is finalized. Here is a little "teaser" :
I love the silky sheen of the yarn and thought to enhance it further by adding beads. I did not want to take away from the beauty of the yarn and have the beads compete with it, so I purchased beads in a similar color. I was thinking of pearls, but of course the holes in pearls are far too small. These are size 6 beads and I think these are perfect for what I am doing. I purchased them at "I Dream of Beading" in Poughkeepsie which gave me a wonderful opportunity to catch up with Janice.
