not sure if i should write a pattern for this one

January 1, 2010

I have a Jewish friend who asked for a hat for Hanukkah.  I had started on a very pretty tweed-looking hat when he texted me and asked if I could put Diesel in his hat — Diesel being his 100 lb. black dog.  It took me a while to figure out how I might do it.  I ended up deciding on making a basic hat pattern but then I took a pattern for a dishcloth with a dog on it because I couldn’t find a dog hat.  Instead of doing the knitting and purling it called for, I changed between the two colors.  Here’s a picture of the hat.

I think it’s a great pattern for a dog lover.  Plus, there aren’t any dog hat patterns that I could find anywhere.  Please give me some input as I took pretty careful notes as I was knitting and should be able to manage a pattern out of it!


such an amazing pattern, it must be shared

I am going through my usual list of blogs and this time I can finally respond to them with a link back to my own blog!  I happened to stumble upon one of the most beautiful sweaters I’ve seen in a while.  The original pattern is September [on Ravelry here] but she has made some wonderful alterations [on Ravelry here] to it that I’m going to have to cast on as soon as I finish my holiday knitting.  For those without Ravelry, which just seems crazy to me, here are a few pictures:

Now if that isn’t one of the most beautiful sweaters you’ve seen, you’re just crazy.  But anyways, it’s time to get back to my blog commenting — yay!  Hope everyone else enjoys this sweater just as much as I have so far and I’m sure that I will once it’s finished and on me!
