So what you see above is the yarn that my Partner at the MWK scarf Exchange gave me and I am making a hat to match the scarf. I was looking for male designers and I found a very talented man. His name is Danny and you can find him here at http://www.doknitting.com and you can also find him in Ravelry Here http://www.ravelry.com/designers/danny-ouellette . That is his designer profile. I don't want my lady friends to think that I am discriminating lol!, it is not my style. Why did I chose his designs, three by the way. I found them very intriguing and one of the Hats I got the pattern for uses Noro yarn and it looks fantastic, it is called the Traveling Rib Hat and it is a saver. I also liked that he uses Lamb's Pride which is another yarn that I enjoy working with. The Pattern above that you are seeing the starting point of is called the Head Hugger and it is made on the flat with short rows, you can see the pattern HERE. I thought the patterns and the colors that he has chosen to show off his patterns convinced me to give it a try and see what happens. Thanks Danny Ouellette for designing something that is very man friendly !!! I say that because very few hats can be unfriendly to men or women , but some are definitely looking better on a man or on a woman, you know what I mean!
Among the projects of this year I want to finished the garterlac scarf, I want to take a class on Top Down Sweater, Toe up socks, I want to make an afghan Favorites to be made is "The Great American Aran Afghan"or and "Tree of Life Afghan" , a top down sweater, a cardigan and of course more hats, maybe even some more scarves! There are some intriguing Crochet Patterns on site, but most likely I will be making more Crochet Hat Patterns. There are two Works In progress that You are going to love when they get done. So I hope that you will indulge me in taking the journey with me and my crafts for a wonderful year or Beautiful Yarn, Beautiful Patterns and Beautiful People. Thanks for stopping by!
