The participants on the Nicki Epstein Cruise in September 2011 were given homework to be brought to the classes on board the ship.
One of the items was a 4 or 5 inch x 20 inch piece of knitting. Horizontal or vertical, no particular yarn.
This later turned out to be the start of a hat.
I wasn’t able to complete mine onboard, but did finish it last week.
Mine was knitted, using the knitting machine and I have posted some pictoral instructions in my Pages section of this blog.
