A couple of weeks ago, I was in the hospital.  My awesome friends in San Francisco called up Knit New York, which is two blocks away from the hospital, without me knowing and had delivered two skeins of Misti Alpaca, some knitting needles and the 365 stitch calendar to keep me occupied during my stay at Beth Israel. 

After perusing the stitch guide, and knowing that I didn't have cable needles, I found a herringbone pattern that is subtle and different.

I started out with a simple scarf and devised a plan for a hat in the round, which took some thinking.  The yarn is amazingly soft and I highly recommend it.  And I couldn't be more grateful to have such amazing and thoughtful people in my life.  I hope you like.

After seeing a swatch of the yarn knit in stockinette, I decided that I was glad I picked the stitch pattern I did, because it gives it this cool Mosaic look, but upon closer inspection, you can see the diagonals zig-zags of the herringbone pattern.

Ooh, they look so nice and warm! I looove the hat.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

I'm sorry to hear you were in a hospital. But that scarf looks great. You have really thoughtful friends.

You have some really thoughtful friends. That's the best get-well/sorry-you're-bored gift EVER! I love the results, too. Nice work.
