Stella's Hat, by Knitting School Dropout
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted in Mariposa, less than 1 skein
Size 7 dpns
Time:about 2 weeks
Made for me!
The yarn is so yummy, and this pattern was perfect for it. It wasn't my idea, though. I saw mraow's version on ravelry and knew it was the perfect choice for my lone skein of this colorway. I love it.
In non-knitting news, if a tree falls on your patio, does it make a sound?
The answer is yes. It makes a loud crack, and scares the bejeezus out of you. Then it makes you run to the local hardware store for a bow saw and makes you and your boyfriend cut it into manageable pieces, so you can move it off your patio.
Although we were stressed about it at the time, we're amazed that nothing was damaged.
The only possible problem is that the gutter bows out a bit, but it's nothing that can't be fixed if necessary.
