Heart Hat by Elizabeth Zimmermann


Heart Hat

Pattern : Elizabeth Zimmermann,

Book: Knitting Workshop

Yarn: Cascade 220, used a bit of each skein.

Needles: Addi US #6, 16″

Alterations.. none really. I pretty much just followed the pattern blindly!

Changes I would make: None really except to use a longer needle, the 16 inch was a little tight.

What I learned: How to knit an applied i-cord after the fact! Genius!!

Love it!! Would be an easy pattern to translate to the loom, a small gauge or extra small gauge loom would work fine. The decrease rows in the heart part would be a bit fiddly, but it’s worth it!

And Now for the Rest of the week’s events!

It seems like this week has been filled with nothing but bad news…but other things happened this week.. good things! I was woken up by the sound of a hot air balloon this morning.. that was kinda neat..

I did some fun knitting..


The heart hat from Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Knitting Workshop book. It’s turned out a little smaller than I wanted.. but hey the point was to try it out and have fun! Had to have a little knit in public project..

We have our yard back!

Almost..the grass has to grow in, and I need to get out there and put my Hosta’s back in the ground, and get some landscaping fabric down on some parts so they don’t wash away.

And I finally got my wedding ring resized!!!


It’s only been about 8 years since I have been able to wear my wedding ring.. so hey I think it’s about time! Don’t you?

I got to ‘read’ a book! The Friday Night Knitting Club. I highly recommend it, to not just knitters.. but knitters will especially appreciate it. I loved it, I hated it and in the end I give it two thumbs up!

Not much else.. mostly work knitting, and I am making progress on that front which means.. it will end!!! WOO HOOO!!!
I really don’t begrudge work.. it’s just taking all my time and focus, and being the ADD knitter that I am there is always something pretty shiney that I want to try! SO I have to buckle down, finish this and then I can move on to some fun! (not that this isn’t fun.. it is.. really..)

*imagine photos of these lovely objects here.. as it seems my camera is not working again this morning! I’ll try to get the pictures to add to the post later!!
