Alishar Hat on the way

Image hosting by Photobucket

Just a little teaser of the next upcoming pattern. This first sample came out way too small, but I've started another. I'll be keeping the effect on top, though, because I think it's pretty cool.

Not a lot of other news to report. It's cold cold cold here. I awoke to a pleasant surprise: temperature at +10 F at 7 a.m. That's about 28 degrees warmer than it was two days ago at the same time of day.

We all seem to be recovering from our tummy bugs. Thank goodness!

Not much else to report right now. Some boring socks are almost done. They're so routine, they don't even count. Time to bring some projects out of hibernation.

This is my first effort. Give it a whirl!

The hat is so pretty. You always do such a great job though.

I am waiting with much anticipation for your latest hat pattern. I've already made 3 hats using your other patterns. I made the jester hat for a co-worker, but I made it with stripes. I made the ball on top, but inserted a jingle bell. He loved it. Keep the hat patterns coming.

I love the way that hat comes to a close. I just wish I were talented enough to count stitches and finish the thing without a hitch! It's so nice, as usual!

I agree that the decreases make a very cool effect. Nicely done. Glad you're feeling better, too.

I love the construction of the hat. I'm so happy to see a hat pattern that isn't like any other.

LOVE the hat! The decreases are ingenious. I didn't think I needed a new hat, but maybe I do...
