A friend of mine's co-worker has been diagnosed with leukemia :-(
She's asked me to knit a hat for him, and though I tried to get my yarn to work with the patterns she liked... it just didn't work. (Doesn't this sound familiar?)
So, I've been designing a yummy cabled hat with some of that yummy alpaca yarn I posted about recently. The results? lookin' good so far!
Why is it that whenever I get a good design, I wind up giving the finished product away?
And this time, I've gone and knit it in dark navy, so getting decent pictures will be --- shall we say a challenge. Looks like I'll either have to knit a second one, or put out the call for testers again. I'm starting to feel like a real designer all of a sudden. One pattern already out with testers .... another about to go out before the week is out. Day-am!
Meannwhile, I seem to have lost my photo mojo. (Actually, I just let the camera run out of juice, and keep forgetting to recharge it.)
