A Quick Hi from Tahoe



Snowboarder, Rowan and I are here in Tahoe enjoying the snow! Snowboarder promised to make his debut on the blog if I knit him another hat (he's wearing the black one I designed for him last year). And yesterday, I think I made him the perfect hat. Imagine a gorgeous merino wool (Blue Moon yarn) in a cable pattern, that I designed for him....a Snowboarder hat that Rocks!! He loves it! Hopefully more pics and a pattern when we get home! For now, we are watching the snow fall outside!! Umm.. they are expecting a blizzard tomorrow.






Happy Snow! Hope we get home Saturday!

Snowboarding in Tahoe...I'm so jealous!

Batty said...

Wow, I'm jealous! You get snow, you get to go snowboarding, and I get to go to work in an office that feels you should be able to go snowboarding in it, but no such luck.

Snowboarder looks great in this hat. If the other one is even more perfect, it's hard to imagine without visual assistance (hint, hint, nudge, nudge...).

The hat looks great! Have fun but be careful, it is really stormy here in San Jose already!

Snowboarder looks great in that hat!! I think he's now your official knitty model!

The Curly Knitter said...

Wow, sounds like so much fun! I love the hat too! It's the least he can do to model it! He's lucky to have you knitting for him.

Yay Snowboarder. Pleased to 'meet' you :-) The hat looks great, as does the snow.

Enjoy it all and be safe :-)

It apparently snowed here Wednesday, but I didn't see it. I miss snow (sometimes). Drive home safe and yay for snowboarder pics :)

Howzit Snowboarder! And nice hat, you two.

I'm glad you made it up to Tahoe safely as this weather is a doozy. Have a great weekend and a safe drive back down.

What a nice looking model! He should be on here more. Have fun!

Bezzie said...

I want snow! I heard they're supposed to get like freakin' 10 feet or something crazy. That hat will be put to good use!

Hi Snowboarder! Nice to meet you!

Nice hat there! I love how you knit the cable down the sides, etc.!!

I agree with Cpurl, I think we have a new model ;) Have a super time! :)

LOVE that hat! So does this mean we will be seeing the pattern on your blog soon? I may have to make one!

He looks great in his Irishgirlie original and it's great having him make his debut wearing such an awesome hat!

I can hardly wait to see the STR hat!

Happy New Year!
