The Rose Window
You are responsible for your rose.
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I love Rose Windows. They appear in wonderful places, like the the missions of San Antonio and San Diego. Even in the church where I was baptized, and where my husband and I are getting married again this April. So imagine my delight when inspiration struck and I was able to finally knit the Stained Glass Hat.
Back in another world, another time, pre-blog (imagine!) I planned to make my mom a sweater for Christmas. I was still living in a wonderful place where there were nice day trips to take to scenic places that weren't completely destroyed by wildfires. But I digress. I took a trip to the Green Mountain Spinnery to buy the yarn for the sweater. And in the process discovered their remnants bin. And the pattern for this hat. And so I picked up all the bright colors and have been waiting for more than two years to make this hat. Well, the right time comes around eventually. And I'm sure glad it did. Because I love Rose Windows.
Stained Glass Hat
Pattern: The Stained Glass Hat from Green Mountain Spinnery
Yarn: Mountain Mohair - my new favorite yarn
Needles: US7 dpns
Notes: I changed the colors from their 3 selected colorways and ended up using only 5 colors instead of 6.
Best Thing About This Project: The Christmas basket is staying empty here. These are all mine. And so will the matching mittens be.
