If I were a hat...
I think I would like to be this one. I like to call it the Kabucha hat, since it reminds me of the shape of that excellent Japanese vegetabe. I made it for my sister-in-law, Naomi, who lives in Vermont, a place where they persist in having winter.
This warm topper is made by knitting with two strands -- one from Maine's Fibre Company silk/baby alpaca/merino mix and another from Rowan Kid Silk Haze (fine mohair). I copied, revised, fiddled, etc. the design based on one by my knitting goddess friend, Laurie. I'm just finishing another one -- in shades of pink, no less -- and it might even be for me.
Bring on the snow, if you please!
