A frosty 21 degree dawn has melted as the sun has warmed us to above 30 now on the way to over 50. We have been below average high temperatures for so long that 50 will seem like a heat wave when it is still below average!
I had to take advantage of the sunshine and the hyacinths by the pond to show the progress on my Armenian hat. It is shown atop Meg and Joyce's "Armenian Knitting". I've knitted the chart Meg used for the checkerboard at the bottom and Joyce's knit/knit stitch patterns for the main hat design. Again, these are Jamieson and Smith 2 ply Shetland yarns.
Oh, and the stitch marker? It's a charm bought on the S.S. Badger at their gift shop last summer as we were crossing Lake Michigan to Retreat 2.75.
