once upon a time, i foolishly knitted an all-wool hat in new york city in the middle of the frakkin’ humid, hot summer in a starbucks and a rent-controlled apartment in washington heights.
it was the famed hat of kittyville.
i gave it to the purtiest, snarkiest opera singer i know.
opera singer ridiculously had a metamoment and put it on her cat who was highly displeased to be wearing extra cat ears.
i added some Fast stripes, grafted her back shut, and gave the hat 6
balls pom-poms. and now it is my great pleasure to introduce to you:
yarn: sensations bellezza tesoro 100% wool in blue, cream and yellow (dude, this stuff was on sale at jo-ann for $3 a ball. it’s REALLY soft, sproingy and stretchy, too.)
needles: knitpicks options US7
date started: 12/26/06
date finished: 12/27/06
date hacked in half and finished again: 12/28/06
mods: um, the whole cutting it in half thing. i also did the italian tubular cast-on which is currently my favorite cast on for hats, socks, and stranded mittens, but that wasn’t really a pattern modification. other than that, not really much of anything.
