Ahem. I’m pleased!
Now, allow me to offer a few general notes, because I’m like that and can never ever ever stop the barrage of words.
1) Yes! Pattern soon! This will almost certainly be the first pattern of the new year, which means almost certainly January or February. But the world is weird and scary right now, so I can’t tell you a firm date. Do the mailing list thing (link in my profile, click this picture) if you want to be sure to hear.
2) Yarn is from @gaugedyeworks. It’s amazingly nifty, astonishingly carefully dyed yarn that does This Exact Thing. Go let them know if you want it by getting on their notification list so they can have it ready when the pattern drops. There’s a purple version too, and a blue one! (Oh and yes, you will be able to make it with regular yarn, I’ll tell you how in the pattern, but this way is So Damn Much Fun that I think you’re going to want to get your hands on some.)
3) There are going to be Three Different Versions of the hat in the pattern, all slightly different, all playing with the same idea. Version 2 is on my needles, version 3 is on a friend’s needles. Once all three are done, I have to find a day to take photos where I don’t actually die from exposure. So it may be a liiiiiiittle bit of a wait, but I think it will be worth it!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go put a testing call up on ravelry so we can have this ready to go as soon as the hats are finished and the photos taken!
