Hats off to The Quilted Purl customer Rene for creating this fine hat, her very first! Rene came to the shop a couple of weeks ago and expressed a desire to knit a hat and we discussed what was holding her back. A self-taught knitter, Rene is obviously talented. We spent a short time going over some basics of hat knitting, which probably took more time than it should since Rene knits in the Continental style, while I knit in the English style. She chose a beautiful Lonesome Stone Alpaca in the natural colors of two alpacas and here is the result. Thanks for coming back for a little "Show and Tell," Rene. I'm anxious to see what you knit next!
