This is what happens when you have so much fun with hat one that you do not want to stop. But then you also do not want to actually knit the exact same thing a second time. So you tweak just a few very tiny things and somehow get a marvelously different end result. It’s also the piece of knitting that had me saying zooooooooooom and swooooooooooszh and vwoooooooooop basically non stop as the swoopy lines on it revealed themselves. Which probably won’t happen to you because you are probably much more successful at pretending to be a grownup. But I figure if you’re still here at this point, the idea of me making silly noises over my knitting will not be the thing to finally drive you away. Probably. Hopefully. We’ll see.
(Pssst, this is a reminder that some time in January I’m taking most of the patterns that should have been two separate patterns to begin with and raising the prices on them to better reflect that they’re really a set of patterns. I do not have a full list of which patterns I’m doing that to, but if you look at it and think ‘hmmm, that appears to be a hat and a fingerless mitt’ or ‘hmmm, that appears to be several completely different hats’ there’s a darn good chance it’ll be changing. I only mention this so you can grab it now if you’ve been meaning to but putting it off.)
What’s going on? I’m doing a December countdown! Now through Christmas Eve, I’m putting one pattern a day on sale for 25% off. Each sale only runs one day (until 11:59pm eastern time), so grab it while you can. Each day’s sale is listed here on the blog, on instagram, and on twitter, so you can keep up with it wherever you like best (because wow am I not filling everyone’s inbox with email about this every day, I’m not a monster).
