Folks, thank you so much for your great ideas in the last post about what to call my new tam. I was tempted to keep with chess theme, and loved the jacks idea (I almost did that)… but then after I finished the tam (today) I realized that yes, there are indeed little tiny hearts in the motif, and stayed with the original title. (If you click the the image of the tam, you will land on the pattern page for it. ) So after 5 or 6 days (I honestly lost track) of non-stop work designing, redesigning, knitting, ripping out & knitting over, cutting the band off and part of the tam, and reworking the band (plus Vikkel braid) , then making toorie, photographing, pattern writing, pdf editing, uploading… then doing myriad details on the pattern page on Ravelry with linking….
((huge sigh))… I must say, Emma and I were in dire need of a walk. So walk we did.
Thanks again for your feedback. I think I will engage you wonderful readers more often, I didn’t even know half of you were even out there. :)
