Natty Knitting in My Ivy Cap

Hartford York Hats - Kangol Polyester Knit Ivy Cap - The Kangol Argyle IvyHello. My name is Steve Singer, and I’m a knittaholic.
(just practicing for my next Knittaholics Anonymous meeting…)

Speaking of which, there’s an article that may interest all you other knitters. They’re getting themselves all tied up into knots over the difficulties of argyle and plaid, saying:

Plaid is back! You might not recognize it as a plaid because it is on the diagonal and it’s called argyle. Argyle is everywhere … on sweaters, socks, purses and even mittens and hats. The retro look of this knitted intarsia pattern is very trendy. But argyle presents one of the most challenging of knitted projects, even to an experienced knitter.

A little advice, people: one of the best sources of inspiration when attempting your hand at intarsia, is to wear an example on your head. I kid you not: with the Kangol Argyle Ivy atop your brain, you’ll look so good nobody’ll care when you end up with yet another macrame plant holder.

Thanks for reading,
Steve Singer

P.S. if anyone wants some free plant holders, call me. Please.
