Guitar Trim Hats from Thursday

Saturday, February 11th, 2006

Guitar Trim hats by studentsFinally, I am trying to catch up on my photos. Then of course I’m just having bad luck… I edited these hats once. However, PhotoShop crashed when I went to save them, therefore requiring an entirely new edit. I’m not feeling well (one more allergic reaction to something is slowing me down) so of course a hiccup like that doesn’t roll off my back as well as it might some other time.

Luckily, the second time was the charm. Here are the hats from Thursday night Guitar Trim Hat class at Rae’s Yarn Boutique, in all their glory! Clockwise starting at top left is a hat from Fran, then Deborah, then Mary Fran, then Lori. They had taken the first class just one week before… I’m just amazed at how far they got so quickly. In fact, Fran was working on her second hat when I got there at the beginning of class.

The students, for the record, ran the gamut from fairly new knitter to seasoned-but-always-learning knitter. I was delighted to see how well it went. I think they were all surprised how much they enjoyed the colorwork once they took the jump. I had several comments about how they would be looking for more projects of this type. I know there is at least one Dale of Norway baby sweater (with their adorable ladybugs) in the plans.

Isn’t it great to see how the same design can look so personal, with color choice? Just beautiful, ladies. Thank you SO much for taking my class!
