There often comes a time in the tech editor’s life where projects seem to be ALL the same.
This January, it’s hats. I’ve had beanies, tams, cloches, slouchies, chunky, dk, fingering, lace, ribbed, moss-stitched, fair isle, cabled,…. ANYTHING in a hat. You won’t see me complain. There’s a lot of variety that can be input into a hat, and they’re short&sweet projects:
Cast on, work upwards, decrease, done.
Cast on, work downwards, cute bind off, done!
Heck, even I have designed several – one submission, one that’s coming out in a magazine soon and one that I released just last week.
Most of them, including this one above (Sincerely Yours)
can be worked up in an afternoon.
I wonder if this has to do with the weather in the Northern hemisphere. It’s bitterly cold up here and we just want to cover up our ears. I must admit I design hats that can fit my hair – call me vain, but any style other than a beret makes my hair flat and ugly! Also, according to HRH The Mistress of Hats Herself, it suits my face better.
