Topi Part Deux


















Even though it basically looks the same as my first Topi I really like this one more. My second version was done in cotton yarn on size 4 needles and is much more likely to get used sometime this summer. Yay! A practical accessory.

I did most of this while visiting my sister and mother again this weekend. I really wanted to go to the Stitch n Pitch but family comes first. I'll be honest though, 2 things might have prevented me from coming anyway. 1: The heat 2: My propensity to get lost while driving. I was born with no sense of direction. Hell even left versus right trips me up occasionally.

I gave my mom the bag I made for her friend and she got me this funky purse. I like crazy wrestling masks and this bag just compliments my ever growing collection of Mexican folk art so wonderfully. It looks insane but then so do many other things that I own. I should start photographing the more nutty things in my closet. My pink pimp coat doesn't get displayed nearly as often as it should.

    That mexican wrestling mask purse is AWESOME! I luv fun and funky things like this, too. Yay for you. And Yay! for the new, better fitting Lopi.

    Sorry that you couldn't/didn't come to the SnP. It was fun, but dang hot. (So you might have been better off, really.) Next time we have something like this, perhaps we'll set up a carpool.

    love the hat, and the crazy purse, too!

    SnP was fun, but you're spot on that it was very very hot there. I really think they should schedule it for earlier in the season, like April/early May.

    Thanks guys!! I’ve already gotten some use out of the new hat and it’s received several compliments. I can just imagine how hot it was the day of S&P. A hockey version would be awesome. Nice and cold indoors and maybe even cool enough to wear scarves we’ve knitted.

    Nanc- the carpool idea is a good one. I can drive as long as someone else is playing navigator.

    Hanane - I definitely recommend the Topi hat. It is so easy to adjust the size of the hat and you can knit it in all sorts of yarn weights. Maybe I’ll post a picture of the pimp coat in my next knitting update. It’s pretty snazzy.
