Well hi there! (FYI: I’m just going to gloss over the fact that last October I promised to visit this space consistently…because we’re friends, right? Real friends. And real friends are those that can pick up where they left off without so much as a hiccup. So that’s what I’m doing. Treating you like a real friend.)
I wanted to post a picture of my Always Aran Hat pattern that I....yep...ALWAYS have in some state of progress on a set of needles.
Whether it's at swim practice, lacrosse practice, basketball practice, or the doctor's (aka where I feel like I spend most of my life with three boys--who's with me?), I love always having an easy knit ready to grab and go. It's super quick, easily modified (change up the cable!), and...might I humbly suggest...perfect for a skein of Duck Duck Wool Merno Aran (which coincidentally will be in the Etsy shop soon--swear!).
I'll post the pattern up on my blog or Ravelry eventually but for now, I plan to exclusively include it with any purchase of DDW Aran, sound good? Plus--bonus!--if we all knit new hats I bet spring is here to stay. And we'll just be ahead of the hat-game for next year. Win win.
