My daughter Heather has just declared herself “over” hats. I guess that means I am getting no more feedback. I guess after your mother has asked you to approve of too many hats, that is what she should expect.
I looked back over the blog the other day and counted up 96 different hats. Some were, admittedly, variations on a theme. In any case, that is a lot of hats I think. I am going to slow down on posting new hats for now and I am going to try to figure out how to write up and publish some patterns. I am not sure yet how difficult this process will be. I have notes on most of them and I have all of them in the freezer (they are almost all made of pure wool and this precaution guarantees moth proofing until I am certain I have another foolproof method). I can analyze any of them to supplement the notes, which were admittedly sketchy early on in my designing days.
Good Luck with your publishing!
Hey Gillian – if you do get round to publishing your patterns and want to sell them as downloadable pdfs from this website then give me a call (email?) and i’ll show you how to set up wordpress as a shop (and also to get rid of some of the bits on the side – comments rss etc. Love the hats btw – I just started knitting again after 35 years of not doing it ! Take care D
Thanks cuz…I think I will probably take you up on it soonish…maybe skype…I have a friend doing some test knitting for me now
