Santa Cruz Hat and a Gallery Invitation

Check out Maya modeling her new Santa Cruz Hat, made by Thea of Baby Cocktails and Knitting. What a lovely smile!

One of the really fun things about Ravelry is that I’ve been able to see my patterns knit up by other people and to get their feedback on my designs. Of course, not everyone is on Ravelry (yet!), so I’m only hearing from a subsection of the folks who’ve knit my patterns. In the spirit of inclusivity—and, I’ll admit it, because I get a thrill out of seeing my designs knit up by others’ hands—I’ll soon be starting a gallery on this site.

To make things interesting, I’ll turn the gallery into a sort of lucky draw. Every time I receive photos of ten new items for the gallery, I’ll put those knitters’ names into “the hat” and draw out a winner, who will receive a little knitting something: maybe some yarn, maybe a hand-knit dishcloth, maybe some of the patterns I sell through one of my LYSs. To be entered, just send a pic of your version of any one of my patterns to shATwhatifknitsDOTcom (Melissa will be uploading these and asks that you try to keep the documents to a reasonable size). And if you’d like your picture in the gallery to link back to your website, include that address.

Right now, I have the following patterns available free on-line (and more will be coming soon):
Basic Wrist Warmers
Bulky Tam
Point Lobos Hat
Reversible SWS Hat
Sandia Hat
Santa Cruz Hat
Splint Covers
Stripes and Strands Hat
Tamalpais Hats (4 versions)

Enjoy! And please, let me see the results—it does my knitterly heart good.

Free Point Lobos Hat Pattern Packs

I have some leftover sets of 25 of the Point Lobos Hat pattern printed up on nice postcard stock to give away. If you know of a knitting guild or a LYS that would like a set to share with knitters, please let me know by dropping me a line me at shparmetATucscDOTedu with the appropriate mailing info. I don’t want to send out individual cards because the postage will quickly get prohibitive, but I’ll be glad to share full sets with people who can distribute them.

Point Lobos Hat Pattern

Sarah-Hope is still at Stitches West, but asked me (this is Melissa writing…) to post the pattern that she is sharing at the convention. It’s called the Point Lobos Hat. Click here to download a pdf file of the pattern. Personally, I refer to it as the Venus of Willendorf Hat, but whatever it’s called, it’s very cool.

Postcard front, Point Lobos Hat
