Sanquar Hat


Sanquar Hat, originally uploaded by maryjanemidgemink.

Show and tell for a recent, finally finished item. Inspired by the traditional knitting of Sanquhar Scotland. Using leftover Louets Gems, a very stretchy yarn to begin with,made a hat to acomodate large heads or heads with much hair. With 144 stitches and an 18 st pattern repeat, I think a finer yarn would be the answer for a smaller hat. I apologize for the brevity of my posts but "air-time" is fleeting this season!

The hat looks beautiful. Congrats on a finished project - what a great feeling! And good luck with your internet connection. From your earlier posts it looks like all-things-computer have been more than aggravating.

Thanks you two. It has been a pain having all things computer related go wacky. Even at work thinks computerish are wonky...must be the aspect of the moon. I got to wear my new hat last evening when we zzipped out for an island picnic...it was cold!
