Entrelac Hat, New Place To Yak and One of My Favorite Things in Rome
Made this Lady's Entrelac Hat last week. I absolutely love watching the Noro Aya yarn (Colorway #9) work into the different colored blocks in this pattern! No, you do not have to change yarns; it just works up this way.
It becomes addictive as the rows near the crown as it moves faster and faster with the decreases!
This side has different color blocks than the ones in the first photo. Too much fun!
My friends at Rose Path Weaving have invited me to share on their blog, Shush I'm Counting! So, I hope you knitterly (I know that's not a word, but I like it) folks and anyone who might be thinking of knitting will join me over there as I do a guest post or two... or three... I hope you'll stop by and say hi!
I have to share one more favorite from Italy. ALL throughout Rome there were water fountains; fountains fed by the Roman Aqueducts. I LOVED them! You could have fresh, cold water wherever you were. Oh, how I would have loved these during marathon-training-days (no water bottle to carry!). Evan and I availed ourselves frequently! The secret is that you cover the bottom where the water is constantly flowing out and it pops up through a hole to create a water fountain. How ingenious is that???
