  1. I can’t comment on the origins of it but there is a Truro in Cornwall, UK. We pronounce it ‘true-row’.

  2. Our Truro (in Nova Scotia) was named after Truro in England. It is a city and civil parish in Cornwall. 🙂

  3. Truro is a town in Cornwall, England, and on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I think you pronounced it just fine, Staci.

  4. Can you tell me where to find the hat pattern discussed in this podcast? The one that uses leftover bits?
    I really enjoy these podcasts and the instructional videos are very helpful.

  5. Carole – I’m not referring to any specific hat pattern in the podcast, just fair isle hats in general. Fair isle hats use two or more colors in a pattern, so you don’t need much of any one color to knit a hat. You can see the fair isle hats I’ve been knitting lately in my Ravelry notebook: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/verypink
