Dec. 3 edit: 1-2-3 Happy birthday to me! :)

Hey! One of my pins is in the new issue of Knit.1! Wooo! It's a great issue, too, and the first full-sized one. Look!

That's it, my sterling heart pin on the bottom right! There's all sorts of cool stuff in this one. It's the love issue, and it is really well done and very inventive. :)

Onward.... When I finished Tokyo (by Hanne Falkenberg) last year, I had a ton of left-over yarn. So I decided a hat was in order. Of course I wanted it to go with my jacket, so "Toque, Yo!" was born. Hee. I admit, my downfall (well, one of them) is puns. And I know this is a bad one. Forgive me? Please? :D

Here's the hat (and the jacket). I love the way it came out.

I did Meg Swansen's jogless jog for joining the stripes on the top of the hat, and they came out perfectly:

Perspective view:

I *heart* this hat. As soon as I get it all written up, I'm sending the pattern out to a few friends to test knit and then I will offer it to others out there with left-overs from Falkenberg kits!

Note: I am a *huge* Falkenberg fan. Aren't her designs amazing?!

That hat is fantastic! I've had the Tokyo kit in my stash forever. I do hope to start it soon, and when it's done I think I need this hat as well. Looking forward to the pattern.

And congrats on the publication!
