Notes

I’m cheering on designer Louisa Harding as she undertakes the Macmillan Nepal Hiking Challenge November 1 - 11th, 2012 to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Louisa is designing a series of seven Himalayan Hiking Hat patterns to help her fundraising effort. Her personal aim is to have her photo taken wearing one of the hats on each day of the seven day hiking trek. The seventh hat she will actually knit on the hike itself.

I’ve started a Himalayan Hiking Hats Knit-Along in the Louisa Harding group…won’t you join me and support Louisa in her incredible endeavor.

Notes: I found it helpful to use stitch markers between the 12 stitch repeat for the heart color work chart.

My fair isle hearts are a bit “puckery”. I am a tight knitter and I did try hard to keep my floats loose. A good soak before blocking made the hearts better.

I’m having a bit of trouble with doing the Duplicate Stitch on my hat (because of my tight knitting). May just wear it like this for now because it’s adorable either way!

Good luck to our dear Louisa with her goal!
