I was in Cincinnati in early December leading a Passage Quilting workshop and visiting my friend and fellow artist Denise Burge. You gotta check out Denise's quilts. Along with our friend Lisa, we visited a yarn store in Northern Kentucky called Knit On. Denise bought me this fantastic green, red, & gold worsted weight yarn as a Christmas gift and I promised to knit a hat from it. I took a break from knitting socks on #1 needles to knit this sweet little hat on #8s. It worked up in a few hours, using this free waffle hat pattern posted on Pickles. I've been getting tons of complements.
Knit On had plenty of beautiful yarn but the real draw was their super sweet, resident kitty, Tanner. I found out from her owner that Tanner is a girl, she weighs 21 lbs, and that "She was a normal little cat until we had her spayed. She is the victim of a hormone imbalance, we think."
Isn't she great? Love the Cat! Love the Hat!
