New Project #2: Shedir
I started this hat last week, after seeing Brooklyn Tweed's version here. I was having trouble focusing on Print O' The Wave, and I already had the Rowan Calmer yarn for this. The pattern is Shedir from Knitty's 2004 Fall Surprise issue,and it's a beautiful cable pattern. More about how Jenna Wilson came up with the pattern is available here, it's an interesting look into the design process. I don't remember why I have two balls of Calmer, but I know that one of them was ripped apart by Frieda, and painstakingly rewound by my mom. I plan to shorten this up a little, so hopefully I'll only need the ball I've already started--because I don't exactly know where the other one is!
