Medusa

I'm working hard to finish some new patterns these days. The first few will be available within a week or so (if all goes by the plan, that is).

The first one is Medusa. I unvented this playful stitch pattern on the bus a few years ago. It reminds me of worms, but a feminine type (!), hence the name. The worms require a little work, but are all worth it. The hat is the slouchy type which looks good on most of us – and keeps us warm without totally ruining the hair.

Woolen hats are a necessity in winter – and spring. I wear hats as long as I can, I don't like cold ears. But just as essential are gloves. I love wearing woolen gloves. I think they are the perfect hand knitting project – lots of details providing a contrast to all the stockinette stitch in all my sweater projects, yet easy enough to keep my hands busy while watching TV. I'm particularly happy for how these turned out (after a lot of reknitting!). Long, fitted, elegant, seductive, to be worn all the time.

Medusa is worked in my favorite yarn for hats and gloves, a soft, durable 100 % wool yarn which is lovely to work with. It's the same yarn I used for the grey Lady Wannabes. They have been used a lot and still look like new.
