Fall Back – Fall Preview!

Posted on | November 2, 2009 | 12 Comments

I know, Fall is already well underway, but I liked the pairing of the phrases Fall Back and Fall Preview; and this past weekend we all got an extra hour of sleep with Fall Back, so…

The Fall preview part of this post concerns those luscious skeins of Kumara I talked about 2 weeks ago. They became this hat and mitten set that my friend, Jess, kindly agreed to model for me:

I was working on them during the drive to and from Ithaca. A bit at a loss as to what to call them, I decided on Cayuga Hat and Mittens, after the Finger Lake that Ithaca sits at the foot of. The hat will be available in four sizes and the mittens will be available in three.

The pattern is in the hands of the tech editor and then it’s off to my brother for the graphic layout treatment. I hope to have the pattern ready sometime in the next couple of weeks. They’ll be released separately and also as a set.

    So pretty! Reminds me somewhat of Ysolda’s Ripley.

    Yup, both slouchy hats. For Project Runway fans… I was also staring at Logan’s omnipresent slouchy hat – his was a nice, ribbed, masculine version. He was pretty cute in it!

    Yay! It’s a lovely set Connie (and a beautiful preview shot!) I especially like the placement of the vines on the wrist, very elegant.
