Posted on May 04, 2011. 2 comments

One of the best parts about being in this business and vending at knitting and fiber related shows is meeting other knitters all over the country. I love meeting new and experienced knitters and I love to talk about anything knitting related. So if you see me please stop by and say hi!

I’ll be at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival in the Feeling Ewe booth with my patterns and a trunk show located at “OUTSIDE LC20."

The Saffron Baby hat by Michelle Miller appears in the latest issue of Knitcircus magazine.

I’m giving away 3 of my contributor copies of the latest issue of Knitcircus in this thread in my ravelry group. The winners will be chosen randomly among people who respond to the thread between now and May 12th.

I'm also doing a retweet contest on twitter through the end of business today for another three winners, please follow me on twitter and retweet before 5:30 PST tonight for a chance to win the entire Knitcircus #14 issue.

The Saffron Baby hat is a new Fickle Knitter pattern in the 14th issue of Knitcircus. The hat started flat using a special method described in the instructions and then joined in the round and knit from the top down to the brim.

I was inspired by the Fibonacci sequence to when designing the Saffron Baby Hat. The Fibonacci sequence is the numerical sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233 and so on with the next number created by adding the two previous numbers in the sequence. The sequence is somewhat of a mystery in the natural world, popping up in the delicate swirl of sea shells, and in the placement of sunflower seeds in bloom.

    I was there today and got a book of patterns. I can’t wait to start at least one of them!

    The shawls displayed were beautiful hanging in the booth.
