Shedir

I love a toasty head. Unfortunately most wooly hats make my head itch, even the soft cashmere one I got on sale from BR. Then I saw knitbloggers making Shedir from Knitty. The pattern was intriguing, plus the comfort of Rowan Calmer. I got a ball in the shade 'calmer' and knitted the hat on dpn's from beginning to end. My stitches look rather wonky and it took me over a week to finish it, but that's fine. I wore it today (June gloom is ripping through SF)
Shedir
Knitting is my prime passion right now but I also sew, make jewelry, bind books, well, I'm your classic 'I can make that myself' girl. Sewing is the hardest for me, and despite having taking classes, I still feel like a total beginner. This Kimono top was a painless project. I used a McCalls pattern and a tan-indigo cotton fabric from my stash. I thought it would be a great lounging top for those hot days when my room turns into a sauna. Where are you, hot days???

Your Shedir is just lovely, as is the kimono top. How many more of the same patterns can we knit do you think? And will I always be a few months behind you? At least I can say I chose all these projects before I found your blog, well except the scarf that is.

That is a FABULOUS TOP! You're really talented. By the judge of the other things you've sewn, it seems as if you are far from lacking in the sewing department. Can you tell me what pattern number that is?
