I finished my FIRST hat!!! Its a Civil War sleeping cap. It's 100% wool. The yellow and purple are handspun/dyed and the burgundy and blue are tapestry wool I picked up for a $1 a skein:yay:

You clicked insert link instead of insert image. The photos are too large to post here though anyway. Choose a smaller size (no more than 800x600) and try again.

I'm modifying the pattern for me but it was so much easier that a thought!!!

THanks....the theory at events is the crazier the colors the better....apparently victorians loved crazy combos;)

What a neat cap! I think I have that pattern from one of the historical knitting pattern sites. It's nice to see a modern picture of it.

I added them for you. I think you may not be clicking the correct icon. It's this one http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2784/4065074174_a513a66757_o.gif. If you put the jpg link in there the photos show. If you use the one that looks like this http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2483/3651113285_f7e5ca5f7a_o.gifyou just get a link. If you are clicking the right one and pasting the jpg link then I don't know what's going on. Maybe your computer is throwing a tantrum and needs a time out. :lol:

You're right I think I was doing it wrong...only read part of the directions:teehee:

It was a surprisingly easy pattern! I plan on getting several done before the event in Selma at the end of April to see if they'll sell....who knows
