In this episode: Grownup heads and baby toesies. In other words, hats and booties. Bwitain, bwitain bwitain and its arts institutions. The Grand Tour, the grant and the great matter.
Not just “For Mother”, download the free Knitting Apron Pattern.
I completed something! rejoice with me. The Chevron Beanie, by Woolly Wormhead, hails from her book Twisted Woolly Toppers – 10 original hat designs featuring cable, bias and twist techniques. I used Rowan Felted Tweed Aran in the colourway “Soot” for the win.
The pattern for the “mitered box” I described has a name. It’s called The Pinwheel Purse, and it’s by Frankie Brown. A Pinwheel Purse by any name is as addictive. You have been warned.
W00t! I will be in the following cities during the The Big Cast On Road Trip 2012
New York City
Toronto, ON (that’s the one in Canadia)
Minneapolis Saint Paul, MN
Salt Lake City
Dates, times, classes etc, to follow next week.
PS: I need a small girl to squeal with glee at this itinerary, as my middle-aged voice won’t go there.
This week’s Audible pick is bodice ripper, The Other Boleyn Girl, by Philippa Gregory, and it features lots of gowns and medieval sex. What’s not to like.
