perfecting neuroticism since 1984

The idea for this hat hit me like an epiphany, and I was so excited about it that I finished it before the challenge had been officially announced.  I've been working on the pattern for a bit, and have plans to improve it and make the hat even better.  I have made the pattern available in my craft journal.  If anybody knits this, PLEASE let me know!  This is my very first pattern and I want to make sure it's easy to understand, plus I'm excited to see projects made from it.   Cheesy

Inspired by a work by Alex Grey...









This was my first fair-isle project, and I knit two of them while writing the pattern (the black hat was "proof-reading").  The yarn is Bernat Satin, which is soft, warm, and CHEAP!  I had a great time working on this hat for this challenge, and I can't wait to see what everybody else is coming up with!

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.

I love Alex Grey and I really love the black one you made. The colors really pop and the design is great. Smiley

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

I find I relate more to Max & Ruby as I get older.

Definitely very pretty! I'm completely lacking in the ability to get my tension right when working fair isle, so I'm also really impressed it fits on your head!  Wink

I love your design, and the colours you chose to knit it really make it pop.
