He runs the gym where we work out. He knows I knit, and never asked for anything. Just before Rhinebeck, he asked me to knit him a hat. We discussed color choices. He pointed to his Dawn Boot Camp flyer, which is printed on a color of sunrise that would make a sailor take warning.
I knew Brooks Farm would have the right yarn in the right color. Armand shaves his head. The yarn had to be soft. Solana quickly came to mind: super soft, superwash.
Pattern: Smariek's 3am Cabled Hat

Yarn: Brooks Farm Solana, purchased at Rhinebeck 2009

One thing always leads to another. Mr. E's jealousy could only be assuaged by a new hat of his own. This one will be made out of handspun. My notes are sketchy: Spinderella's thrums, spun 8/08, which means purchased in the fall of 2007. It's a three-ply worsted gauge, spun woolen. Shockingly, I could not find a blog post showing the handspun.
