Aunt Anna May to the rescue!

A while back I saw a pattern for a hat that was lace on top and solid underneath. It was called Peek a Boo Hat or something like that. Ravelry totally let me down. I searched through hundreds of hat patterns and never found what I was looking for. Doesn't anyone other than me think it's a brilliant idea!?!?! Well, Nike does and so does SmartWool! But not the rest of the knitting world. I was looking for something in my room tonight and found a book Anna May let me borrow. I feel bad that I've kept it so long! Guess where I saw that pattern?'s in her book! The book is Lace Style by Pam Allen and Ann Budd and it's even Interweave Press. The pattern is Peek-A-Boo Cloche. I can't believe the pattern didn't come up on Ravelry. I can't believe no one else is knitting this hat! Especially since there are similar commercially made hats by expensive brands like Nike and SmartWool! Come on people! Jump on the band wagon! Mine is going to be black on the outside and gold on the inside. Boiler up! I want to have a little school spirit next time I end up at a Purdue basketball game.

Wow!! I can't believe you found it in my book. How nice. Also sweet of you to let the world know I rescued you. It's sweet of you to acknowledge that it's because of me and my book that you found the pattern, but also nice of you to call me "Aunt." It's greatly appreciated.

Also nice to have you back in the blogging world.

I apologize to all of you reading my comment above. I certainly didn't proof read it before I click on the "publish" button. I didn't mean to be so gushy and repetitive. But,TusaRebecca is one of the nicest people I know. And I am honored that she called me "Aunt."

Now, her mother, on the other hand.................
