RUNNER UP! 1000 Fabulous Knit Hat Book


Remember I told you I had sent photos of some of my hats to Annie Modesitt's book project 1000 faboulous hats? I thought I could have a chance of beeing one of thousand by submitting photos of six hats, but it turns out I'm one of the seven runner up hats, and my pattern will be published in the book!! You can see the hats here. Isn't it amazing?!? Can't wait to see the book.

(Some of you, like me, might not be familiar with the expression "Runner-up". Here's what Wikipedia says: "Runner-up is a term used to denote a participant which finishes in second place in any of a variety of competitive endeavors, most notably sporting events and beauty pageants; in the latter instance, the term is applied to more than one of the highest-ranked non-winning contestants, the second-place finisher being designated "first runner-up," the third-place finisher "second runner-up," and so on.")

The pattern is for sale, $ 6. (Until the new football field is a reality, the money goes to this project.)

Den ser virkelig flott ut! Likte så godt fargene, og så tror jeg den vil være både morsom og overkommelig å strikke!

Jeg så lua di fordi jeg hadde fått en link til HarpaJ's lue (den som vant- vi er i samme "gruppe", ei islandsk strikkegruppe på nettet som heter Garnaflækja), og kikka på dem også, og fant ut at jeg har jo fulgt bloggen din også en stund, og der var plutselig lua di!

Takk, Marit!
Ja, den er faktisk ganske morsom å strikke, særlig hvis du har masse restegarn og er glad i å sette sammen farger. Jeg lurer på om jeg skal lage en i grønnfarger etterhvert.
