My name is Cathy. By day, I am a bookkeeper. By night (and weekends!) I design and make knitted, crocheted and tatted items. I live this secret night life with two dogs, two cats, a grown kid (daughter) who's sadly not home much, and a great husband. My other kid's married to a lovely young woman. He comes home more to visit the dog he abandoned with us than to see me, I think, but I still feed him when he shows up. I love reading (fantasy and SF, mainly), watching documentaries, surfing the tube/net/web, gardening (fresh vegetables!), hanging out and a miscellany of other things - I'm curious about most everything! It's not near as boring as I just made it sound.View all patterns by designer (14) »
Here's the thing. Some days, when I have to walk to the subway, then from the subway to work and it's oh-dark-thirty and the wind is knifing through the street canyons, I need a hat. A no-nonsense, seriously warm hat. This is it. The Betsy is double thick and reversible, made in double knit ribbing. It's alpaca, which is warmer than wool and softer. It's got a very generous brim, so I can pull it right down around my face on days when I feel like my eyelashes are frosting up. And it's soft, skwooshy, bright and cheerful, to boot.
