After the chicken hat, and before the kind lesson in white balance from a knowledgeable friend and reader… I decided something simple was called for. This is the swatchless watch cap from Knitting from the Center Out by Daniel Yuhas. Locals may recognise that I am casting on, on the train.
This hat went a few places, from our house…
…to solstice dinner with a big bunch of friends large and small.
This is a small amount (66g) of luxury handspun merino/yak/silk naturally dyed by A Verb for Keeping Warm in ‘sticks and stones’. I bought the fibre from someone else’s destash and it struck me as a delightfully soft and understated hat for someone. Done.
