blow, blow thou winter wind...
I tried a couple of photos of it on me, but they didn't turn out very well. My model has let her striped study shawl slip off her shoulder. I didn't notice till I downloaded the photo.
I have a few children's hats already done and put them away. I'll send them too and she will give them to social workers working with children after the earth quake. I didn't want to burden her with distribution but she has said she'll pass them on.
I am being a glutton for punishment. The cowl is done in knit 2 purl 2 rib and I've moved on to a beanie for my eldest son. About three years ago, I made him a black alpaca hat with all the lower part in moss stitch. I made him a slightly different style just before I came here but he's asked for another just like the first. I had an order from Bendigo and he picked out grey alpaca. So off I went again. Knit 1, purl 1 all round on an uneven number of stitches so the moss stitch took little concentration. I'm almost up to the decreasing which will be done in stocking stitch to make things easy.
