People that know me shouldn't be surprised the pun. Yes, it's groan worthy, and I'm almost sorry. Still, the look of pained resignation and anguish from my boyfriend when I suggested the name really decided it for me.
I confess that this time I'm really having mixed feelings about publishing this. I've been tinkering with it since October, when I realized how completely impractical "Secretive Storms" was for Southern California. I've knitted it up four times already, making subtle adjustments. For some reason I'm having a huge case of the blogger's version of stage fright; so I'm hoping you'll be as understanding as parents at a toddler's ballet recital.
Click here for a link to a pdf of the pattern: Frondly Yours*. I hope you enjoy making and wearing this hat that can be somewhere between a beanie and a beret. As with my other patterns that I offer for free, please do not directly repost the pattern. I ask instead that you link people to this blog post; watching the number of page views increase is one of the biggest warm fuzzies I have. And if you like the pattern, cough cough... it wouldn't hurt my feelings at all if you clicked on a link; unfortunately, it's one of my only sources of income these days. Also, if you find any issues with the pattern, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll fix it.
