A pattern with a life of its own! Th is close-fitting beanie was inspired by a work-in-progress collection of space-based patterns (hubby is an astronomy nerd), but as I purled up the samples of this hat, I began to see all my geekery shine: not just planets, but little Hobbit holes, Star Trek rank insignia, Mac dots, Angry Chickens, my university colours.... Oh, the list goes on. Don't be afraid of Planetary's bright lights of colour. They are deceptively simple to decode. Plus, once you've learned the trick, you'll be able to incorporate crazy circles into all kinds of knitted landscapes.

I eat. I drink. I knit. I read. Sometimes all at once. I’m an American expat who flew the coop many years back and fell in love with New Zealand; I believe in the Force; and I have embraced my potty mouth. At the same time, I’m a kick ass mom and a terrific wife. My designs come from the same part of my brain that houses odd facts, British humour, and song lyrics. Welcome to my strange world.
