I’ve had one skein of chunky Malabrigo since I went to KC in April. I knew it would probably be a scarf or a hat, since there was only 104 yards of it. But I hadn’t found anything I like. I knew I wanted cables. So with some figuring I came out with simple pattern that would show off the yarn and look great. I knit most of it while watching 300, so in honor of the movie I named in the “You Don’t Know Our Women Hat” If you haven’t seen the movie it’s full of badassness, lots of near naked men kicking butt and the women, while not a big part of the movie, are given their due. They are at war and the King is talking to his enemy and they have this exchange
Granted no one in the movie would would wear a knitted hat as they are too busy running about half dressed and being bad ass. But if they were in danger of freezing to death and HAD to wear a hat, this would be it. It’s plenty bad ass.
When I watch TV alone I like to add my own narration, for example – Official Narrator : Only the hard and strong may call themselves Spartans. Me : and apparently only the very hot. Followed by giggles because I think I’m hilarious.
I did take notes at I knit this so if anyone wants one of their very own let me know and I’ll type them up.
PS I know I have a lots of email to answer and blog posts to read, I’m trying to catch up, so if I haven’t answered an email I will I promise!
