tamification

Leah and I recently watched Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitting Workshop series on DVD, on loan from the library. Elizabeth was kind enough to let us in on the secret that a tam is knit in the same fashion as any other winter hat and gets its distinctive shape solely from the blocking process. That would explain why the tam Leah knit in November turned out like more of a regular winter toque!

So into a soak it went, then blocking over a Tupperware lid, since our dinner plates were too big. Ta-da! Tamification!
We both love the kaleidoscopic star pattern.
Thanks, Elizabeth!

At least your library has the DVD to rent - ours only has one vhs tape that is in terrible condition!

Pretty tam Leah!
