A little over a month ago I attended the Hill Country Weavers’s retreat in Austin, Texas. As if having more fun than should be legal wasn’t enough, I received another gift for teaching. Cindy, the main organizer and one of my best besties knitted this hat for me.
This is called the Keep Austin Weird Hat. It’s made with two contrasting skeins of Noro yarn (though I can’t tell where one skein begins and the other ends in this hat) and is incredibly warm and comfortable. Even my twenty-year-old sons approve. Contact Hill Country Weavers for the pattern — I’m sure they’d send it to you.
Where I live, spring is a three-month fight between winter and summer. There are sure to be many more cold days before summer wins. And I plan to wear this hat every one of them!
