I have been looking at the latest issue of Knitty in the last few days. A few things I want to highlight. I have been intrigued by Habu Textiles stainless steel yarn for several years (JQ—remember we made a yarn store trip in Atlanta just so I could see it and other Habu Textiles yarns), so it was interesting see the Tin roof scarf.
Geshenk, a shawl, uses very small amounts of yarn, designed for a special handspun skein. It is shown in three weights of yarn.
The Uhlan cap comes with a history of this type of headwear meant to be worn under a helmet.The history is interesting and the item looks warm. So it looks tempting to make. I like the picture from c1900 better—it has ribbing on the head not garter.
Ethnic Knitting Adventures has interesting information on Andean hats. This might be ab better option for a winter hat.
