Knit Now issue 14 has now hit the shelves, and I've a few things inside!

Earlier in the year, Joy of The Knitting Goddess very kindly sent me a parcel, a parcel that contained numerous thoughtful things. She'd sent me some tiger balm and a homeopathic remedy to help me recover from surgery, and she also gifted me a skein of her beautiful alpaca, silk & cashmere blend in soft greys. I was very touched by Joy's thoughtfulness and generosity, and I felt the very least I could do was to publish a pattern for her yarn as a thank you.

And so Runway was born.

The yarn lends itself beautifully to the garter stitch based pattern, and has just the right amount of drape for this gentle, casual style. The pattern includes 4 sizes (18in to 24in/45.75cm to 61cm) and is easily adjustable in both length and circumference should you wish.

This Hat was on the needles when I was away to TNNA, and was my journey project on the many plane journeys. As I was touching back down to the UK, having knitted all the way on my flight, the BA staff were kind (and understanding enough) to let me knit whilst taking off and touching down, and that's how the Hat got it's name.

Also in this issue I have my first article published with Knit Now. 'Get ahead, get a Hat!' is an overview of my Hat Clinics, containing a number of tips on how to choose the right Hat for you, and how to wear it. It's always helpful to come along to the Hat Clinic and receive personal advise, but not everyone can, and so this article is the next best thing. 

Enjoy!
