We are having such a great time on the Secret of the Stole KAL group. I put out the first hint this past Friday and so far, there have been no explosions. The stole begins with two points instead of a more traditional one point. Many of the members have been posting that they are learning a lot already and we have only just begun.
The Sit ‘n Knit New York group in New York City got together and had some fun Saturday evening. About a dozen of them brought their stoles to work on and I am not sure if alcohol was involved or not, but, someone eventually turned the two pointed end upside down and Viola, a bikini top was born. According to reports there was some singing of the song “She wore an Itsy, Bitsy, Teeny, Wheeny Secret of the Stole Bikini”. Here is their version of hint #1. Not quite what I had in mind, but completely hysterical nonetheless. Now I can’t get that song out of my head. Thanks, Judes (who is claiming she is not the one in the shot) for the photo and for making my soda exit my nose this morning. What a hoot.
Other knitting news. Knitting Daily has a short tutorial on how to convert a stitch pattern from knitting flat to knitting in the round. It is pretty basic, but a good place to start if you were wondering how it is done.
Also, check out this free hat pattern for the holidays. I am going to make two for my grandson. One as the pattern is written and one that is a silver or grey with a white, flat “tail” at the top of the hat so it will look like a Hershey Kiss.
