Introducing the Koolhaas Hat. This pattern is from the 2007 Interweave Knits Gifts. I've eyed the pattern for most of the year, so when a friend emailed and asked for a hat to keep his head warm in Minnesota, I decided to make this. I used some random wool from New Mexico. Fun pattern and a nice way to experiment with a new stitch pattern a bit.
This year's holiday edition of Interweave Knit Gifts is out now and I am tempted by it. Nice shiny new ideas. Never mind that I have hundreds of "old" ideas that I have never executed yet. I seem to collect books and ideas instead of executing the ideas I already have. In order to combat this, I think it is time for another little game with myself. I, Lisa, do solemnly swear that I will not buy the latest edition of Interweave Knit Gifts until I have executed at least 10 of the ideas that I currently have. Here is a beginning list:
1. Finish Hailey's knucks.
2. Finish my Dogwood Blossom Shawl.
3. Twirly Girl apron.
4. One other apron.
I'll need to fill in the list as I go along, but this will definitely be a beginning! It should take me through the next month or the end of the year, depending on how many projects I get to. Wish me luck!
