Oh dear, I think I have a new craze: hats. Tams to be exact. Tams with stranded knitting. Oh my, here we go.
Years and years ago, I went on a Fair Isle tam craze. I made bunches of them, some for me, some for the kids, and all in lovely Shetland wool. Now you have to understand that I look like a complete dork in hats. Except for baseball hats, because they have that great bill, I look like a little old lady. OK, granted that I'm not a young chick, but I look like the 95-year old Mommie. It's grand to look like I'm 95, but not when I'm 66. I don't mind aging, but we don't have to rush it.
So, why the hat lunacy? I love knitting tams. Period. Love it. And I totally forgot just how much I loved it until I whipped out a practice hat in DK yarn. Deary me, now I have to knit hats in DK.
Crochet is moving into second place while I get my hat groove on. Poor crochet. Not to worry, though, I'm doing it at night when the brain is in need of auto-pilot.
More yarns: All Benji, 100% SW merino, 3 ply, over 470 yards of skinny yarndom, and wonderful for shawls, scarves, baby gear.
