Fiber #44 :: Longevity

To reemphasize that I like to make doubles, especially in purple ...



Just like my Selbu, but in a variegated yarn. I think this pattern suits itself beautifully to variegated yarn! It was so beautiful and addictive to knit, Koigu produces absolutely fabulous colors and this one has the most stunning purples, blues, indigos and pinks all twisted together. That there is my crafting buddy Rita. Isn't she gorgeous? We've known each other since college, and our friendship has evolved through Chinese dance, crafting, and general DIY-ness. The woman cut my hair a couple days ago, for crying out loud! Stupendous she is. That's why this hat is named "Longevity" - for our friendship - though I also toyed with the idea of "Evolution." But maybe I'm hoping it'll be good luck for another decade if friendship (at least) to come.


Thanks Rita! Love ya!

Your knitting is always so impressive and I think doubles are the only way to go!

Beautiful hat, Jessica. I love the colours. How great to have a friend who will cut your hair - I keep asking everyone to cut mine but no one is brave enough!
