I mentioned that I went to the Knitter’s Review Retreat last fall. In addition to the wonderful workshop I enjoyed visiting the vendors. It’s much smaller than any fiber festival, so you get a good chance to really talk to the vendors. One of them was Kathryn Alexander who designs some of the most colorful creative things I’ve seen. My mother in law loves her work. So I decided to get a kit for a hat for her for Christmas. As you can infer, by the date and title of this post, the hat was not ready for Christmas. Fortunately she was excited by the picture I printed from the website and was willing to wait. However, she isn’t willing to wait forever. So with each finished item she sees, or hat that I’m working on, she asks, “is mine done yet?” To which I have to answer honestly. So, I need to start this. I have to admit, I am stalling. It’s entrelac, which I’ve never done, and a LOT of little skeins that need to be wound up.
