Back in November & December when I knit all of those hats for Dulaan, DD#1 had a favorite that she really wanted to keep for herself.  I told her we couldn't keep it, but that I would make another just like it.  One day last week as she was walking out the door to school, she dropped the hat into my lap and said it's time I keep my promise.  I spent the day knitting, making a few improvements to the original, and by the next day she was able to wear her own version to school.

I thought this would be a good time to post this pattern.  It is Fair Isle February after all, and the Stranded Colorwork Challenge* is still in full swing.   So I give you Mirelle.  You'll find the pdf in the sidebar.  Since it's DD#1's hat, I let her name it.  She's calling it Mirelle.  She doesn't know why, she just likes the name.



Thank you to everyone who offered photography advice on my last post.  I am eager to learn more about getting the most out of my camera.  There were many wonderful tips and suggestions.  Today it was a little cold as we took the photos of Mirelle, so we rushed through the photo shoot.  But I did take the time to tinker a bit with a few of the adjustments on the camera, and am happy with the resulting colors and exposure.  DD#1's static filled hair could use a bit of work, but one step at a time.  Her hair always has had a life of its own. . .

*If you follow the Stranded Colorwork Challenge link, be sure to check out the Flikr group.  There are some amazing things being knit.
