fo: fake isle hat
sooooo this is my first attempt at stranding and i looooove it! i finished this hat in one evening (yes it was a very long evening, but still) because i could not wait to see it finished. i used noro kureyon color# 163 and lamb's pride worsted in creme. unfortunately it does not fit too well, i think i may have done the strands on the top half of the hat too tight and i probably should have made the bigger size. i didn't realize my head was soo big! haha but i loved making it and i think it is beautiful!

That IS pretty. I remember redheadrachel's hat like that and this reminds me again to do it.

Great job! Maybe you can block it bigger?

Great work! It is beautiful and whoever gets to wear it will love it. If you haven't already, search for the Philosopher's website. See has a really neat way of doing color work without having to strand. I'm using it on a felted tote and its pretty slick.

PS - see the link above!

Neat!! I've seen this hat before too and love it. I can surely understand how you couldn't put it down until finished.

I wonder if you could wet it and use your head to block it? I've never done this but seems like it might work. Others... could this work?

I am in awe! What a gorgeous hat!

My greatest nemesis is stranded knitting! Sigh.

Fabulous! I'm not brave enough to try stranded knitting. I can barely handle one strand of yarn at a time.
