A long, long time ago, before I was a Mom and before I was a fabric addict, I was enthralled with another fibre art. I was a knitter and crocheter! I learned to knit as a child and picked it up again in my early twenties. Since learning to sew, I have barely picked up my needles and hooks. I'm simply not drawn to yarn in the same way I was before. However, my winter hat is getting pilled and I've had a Sockhead Hat in progress since winter 2011. This is a wonderful pattern. This is actually my second Sockhead. I lost my first one which stinks because it was gorgeous. The hat is dead easy to make; just a straight knit stitch in the round using sock yarn. Oh, how I love sock yarn! I'm using Dream in Colour in cream and it has silvery strands in it. It's beautiful.
