Hats Off

In my continuing efforts to keep the Horner heads warm, I have added another knit cap to the collection. This a pattern by Anna Zilboorg that has been bastardized to accommodate using a much smaller gauge yarn by adding extra pattern repeats and sneaking in many extra rows.  All in all, I think it came out quite cute.

And, for another fun finish (well, the stitching part is finished, but I've not made it into anything yet.)  I got this idea from seeing a QR code made of a waffle with chicklets and chocolate chips.  I know I am not the first to do this in stitches, but when the idea struck, I could NOT RESIST.

Please, please, pull out your smart phone and scan this baby! I was just so tickled that it worked.  Isn't technology amazing!


  1. *sigh* I don't have a smart phone, so can you tell me what I'm missing, please?

    Also, the comment form won't let me log in with Open ID any more, only Google Accounts.


  2. Hey, I did it -- my red laser reader is pretty clunky -- or maybe I'm clumsy. Oh well. It worked!

    Love the hat!

  3. Sorry, Christine. Smart phones are useful in some ways, but mostly just to play with. This is one of those 2-D bar-codes. All it does is give a link to the Ink Circles site. You know how to get there already ;-)

  4. Wheee! I love QR codes - We're designing new genre bookmarks at work and I'm trying to convince management to include a QR code which links to a results page of searching that genre in our opac. Then people can scroll through the list, see what they like and reserve books to their taste!
