We've been home for 4 weeks, and I'm just getting around to talking about one of the best travel projects ever. As Linda would say, "What a slacker!" This was my knitting companion from Adrian to Atlanta and from Atlanta to Sunset Beach. Remember way back in November when I told you about that whimsical, unique, colorful stocking cap I saw on the adorable girl at the Fall Fiber Festival? I did a little teaser then told you I'd write about the fabulous cap soon. Three months is a little long to have to wait for the punchline. Christmas intervened, then Sunset Beach, but now I have the pictures taken and am ready to share one of my favorite travel projects of all time. (I think I'll do on post on my all time favorite travel projects.)
I really wish Lydia had a head. It would make this stocking cap look even better. Look at the stitch pattern, the great way Twisted Fiber Art's Evolution gradually blends colors. This is colorway Blaze. Isn't it perfect. Now picture this on an adorable, pixie girl. Is it any wonder I fell in love with it? It looks great on me even though I'm not an adorable, pixie girl.
This gives you a better idea of the color change.
Headless Lydia models Hazel's Grandma's Stocking Cap in probably my favorite colorway Roy G. Biv. I love this! It is the rainbow. I am so grateful that Hazel's Grandma took the time to write down the pattern for me. I really did beg a bit. Can you whine in writing or can you only whine when speaking? I may have whined a bit, too. On one level, I hope TFA kits this so everyone can share in this great pattern. But on another level, I would like to be one of a few to have this great stocking cap.
Saturday Linda and I are going to Twisted Fiber Art for another Yarn Tasting. We had so much fun at he last one that we decided we had to go again. New, limited edition colorways will be introduced. I am sure there will be new patterns. I can't wait. I will take pictures and tell stories about our adventure.
