Yesterday it did this outside.

Norwegian Skier Hat done

Yesterday I did this inside.

All the details: Norwegian Skier Hat kit from Bea Ellis Knitwear, knit as the pattern directed - no changes by me (can you believe it?) I've still got to sew the cotton lining band to the hat, I just folded it up for the picture, but then it's done and Caleb can wear it.

Have a great weekend!

Wow, the hat is gorgeous! Looks cold at your house. It's 19 degrees here and the wind is blowing about 35-40 MPH, so quite a frigid wind chill going on. No snow though. Have a great weekend and stay warm!

I love the hat - I'm sure you son can't wait to wear it. Stay warm, we're having below zero temps here in WI this weekend. Brrr. I'm staying inside to knit.

The hat is fabulous and the picture of your tree is a good one! I feel sorry for everyone with freezing temps outside. We are miserable here and the sun is shining and it's 40 degrees. : ] Mindy

Love the nordic hat and great idea for cotton lining. We got down to 10 degree the night but in the day it's in low 50s. Today's bright and sunny and we are going for a hike!

Good job on the hat. Any suggestions on getting stranded colour work to be more stretchy? jebaines@telus.net

great color work - I am just starting a fair isle sweater with color works. I have questions about mystry shawl - how do I contact you. I am new to this blogging thing.

Hi - your work is GORGEOUS.
I purchased the Hanami pattern from you - and bought the yarn from KnitPicks (great site!!).
I'm a bit stumped on the beads for the cast-on. I'm not a beader, so not so familiar with terminology and sizing. What is the equivalent to Mill Hill Size 8? I bought some seed beeds, size 8. It seems similar to the Mill Hill 8/0, and it's about 3mm across. But no way is a crochet hook going to fit in there.

I spoke to a couple of people in bead stores and they were perplexed. Someone tried to sell me a size 8 bead that is approx 1/4 inch in diameter. I can't imaging those are on the end of this lightweight scarf.

Any light you can shed on this would be greatly appreciated!

My outside looks like your outside! I have 6 inches of snow to blow off the driveway and it is -2 degrees F. I'm procrastinating with some blog reading and a cuppa of coffee.

I did a Bea Ellis hat for my first colorwork project. They have great customer service. Mine didn't turn out nearly as nice as yours (due to my rookie-ness with colorwork).

I've been looking all over for this pattern/chart, and haven't been able to find it! I can find the archive of it on the Bea Ellis website, but there is no longer a main site or contact to be found! Would it be possible for you to please email me a copy/picture of the chart?

Thank you!
