The Force Awakens

Couple local members of the family have seen the movie. I am sure that the Chicago Duo has seen it as well.

I had received a request for a hat relating to the above. Daughter #2 found the pattern (free) while perusing Ravelry.

You take a reasonable size needle – oh, lets say about 3.5-3.75 and a couple three shades of worsted weight yarn. In this case it is really just two shades of Schoppel’s Gradient since the long color changes solve most of the problems.



And happily knit along adjusting the colors if you need to.


So now it is the second half of the crossed light sabers and the warrior who needs to be finished then mailed off…

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
