One of my favorite blogs to visit is
Its writer, Tanna and I have become
We share our passions for knitting
and our bungalow houses.
In fact, Tanna's icon of her house when she left a comment
for someone else blog is what first caught my eye.
It reminded me a lot of my house.
We often seem to be on similiar paths.
Earlier this month she did a blog post on entrelac hats,
which you can read here .
It just so happened I was knitting entrelac hats too!
Entrelac is a knitting stitch which gives a woven look to the finished piece.
It's fun to use more than one color to define the woven effect.
On this hat, I'm using a solid teal wool from my stash
and Brown Sheep's Handpaint
which is a space dyed mohair and wool,
one of my favorite yarns.
How about a poinsettia hat for the holidays?
