With Dad's mittens well under control, I must face the looming hat crisis chez Subway Knitter. My blue hat, while lovely, simply does not go with my coat. Something must be done, and that something must involve yarn.
I have blogged recently about potential hat projects. I have the yarn for one, and I have another in the queue.
"What is it?" you ask.
Ah! Here is the felted hat for which I have searched! If you can't tell, I'm looking for a boxy hat which will cover my ears. The bucket hat patterns, while great, will be more suited to early spring weather.
A pattern search began. Phone call to two local stores (A Good Yarn and Wild & Woolly) proved fruitless--not in stock. I sent an email to WEBS; it's not there either. I finally found the pattern online at Purlple Kitty Yarns, in New York (state, not city). I hope to have it soon.
