The last few months have been challenging, to say the least. I moved six weeks ago--in the middle of the pandemic--and have been living amongst boxes and masked contractors ever since. My stash is in complete disarray; every time I think I'm getting it organized I have to pack it up and shift it to another room.
Normally I spend the summer months creating designs for Fall & Winter, but the move and the lockdown have made this process a challenge at best, and an anxiety-provoking, creativity-sapping, mind-melting chore at worst.
But yesterday, while elbow deep in fingering weight stash, I was reminded of a cheery little pattern called The Aldershot Hat. Last September, it was the #1 pattern on Ravelry. Today, I'll be casting one on. This hat is fun, fast, easy to modify, and a terrific stash-buster; exactly the kind of knit I need right now!
If it's exactly the kind of knit YOU need right now, you're in luck! The Aldershot Hat is available in my Ravelry shop at 30% off from now until Sunday, June 21st at 11:59 p.m. EST. Happy stash diving my knitty friends!
Hello & Welcome!
I'm Alexis, the knitter/designer behind cold comfort knits. My favourite animal is a sheep (obvi). Second in line? Alpacas. But not llamas--those guys are mean! As for house pets? I'm a cat person, 100%. Other things to know about me? My primary knitting fuel is vanilla-hazelnut coffee. And my inner child is actually more of an inner senior-citizen. I'm an old fogey at heart. Nice to meet you! Happy knitting!
