A warm winter hat

Posted 10/21/2014 8:27am by Tom & Nancy Imphong.

  21 October 2014 – Last winter I needed a warm hat to wear when doing my barn chores.  I wanted something that would cover, and fit snugly, around my ears - - yet be loose enough on top not to leave me with “hat hair”. I came up with this:

This year I have been knitting up this hat for sale.  I make the hats from Belle and Petey”s white fiber which I kettle dye in a variety of colors.  Kettle dyeing gives a variegated tone which I think is more interesting than a solid color.

I also have for sale dyed skeins of yarn, sufficient to knit this hat, along with a copy of the pattern that I use. 

This weekend’s show is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen which guarantees that all offerings will be of the highest quality.


The show is being held this weekend, October 25 & 26, at the Carlisle Expo Center ~ 100 K Street in Carlisle, PA.  Show hours are 10-5 both days. Look for our signs -  Fall Into Fine Craft - all over the Carlisle area.  

And look for me at Booth No. 30.
