This winter, all I seem to be knitting is hats! Chunky hats, simple hats, sparkly hats, Cashmere and Wool and Mohair hats. Many have pom-poms, because it's a huge trend and String has a multitude of fun colors to choose from. We made tons of fun kits to sell at Vogue Knitting Live NYC in January and many sold out before the end of the weekend. 

My favorite is the Annette hat (modeled by the beautiful Alison J Weiss). I designed a band of cashmere with crystal sparkles in a slipped stitch to make a warm and great fitting headband, then sts are picked up for the crown. 

All patterns are free with yarn purchase at String The Cable Cashmere Hat pattern is available to purchase from my Ravelry  page.

July 30th and 31st We had a delightful Knitting and Literary Journey! Expanding on our collaboration of the Faerie Knits column for Faerie Magazine , 13 amazing students joined me and my cousin, best selling author Alice Hoffman, for 2 days of extraordinary knitting instruction interspersed with literary readings, a writing workshop, and a fun faerie craft project.

I am so honored to have been asked to participate in the annual Ethelridge Road Knitting Salon retreat this year in the Berkshire Mountains - it was alot of fun,  an educational experience all around , and a great few days with old and new friends.
