What else have I been knitting? Well, I knit these Chemo caps for my mom to wear while she is temporarily hair deprived.
The brown one is Shedir and the blue one is Odessa. Both were very enjoyable knits in two colors of the LOVELY Rowan Calmer yarn. Odessa was an easy knit with a pattern that is easy to memorize. Sedir was only a bit more complicated because of the chart involved.
A word about charts....I used to believe that I could only knit with charts at home with a magnifying glass with lots of light and a fist full of post-its. NOT so! I knit Shedir mostly on planes. I simply brought Scotch tape with me and taped the chart to the tray table in front of me and it worked Perfectly! It was even better than being at home because, the cozyiness of airplane seats let the the chart be right at eye level IN my face.
Odessa was altered slightly by not adding the beads. I felt that it may cause some irritation with a sensitive bald scalp, but I can't wait to make one WITH the beads.
I'll leave you all with a taste of fall from Illinios!
