These are the last two hats and all six will go in the mail tomorrow morning. The one on the left is from the skein I just showed in my last blog, spun from Blue-Face Leicester roving dyed by my neighbor Mim. It uncannily matched up with a skein I dyed last weekend. I clearly need better hat models than ta cookie jar and a cannister.
Thanks for all the nice compliments about my hat patterns but the recognition really belongs to this book. I bought it from the library used book sale for $1, probably the best $1 I've ever spent in the library. Roberts breaks the patterns into ethnic groups and then into stitch repetitions. I've used the 16 stitch repeat a lot.
