WIP Wednesday: I’m in a hat mood

My love affair with socks has wained a bit…it was fast and furious and I’m just now coming up for air. Who could have known socks could be so…so…all consuming?! You sock knitters are a special breed, let me tell you!

Don’t get me wrong, sock knitting is still a great interest, but I’ve managed to break away long enough to realized I’ve been neglecting my first true love.

hats.

And…winter is coming. Yes it may be +30* Celsius most days! but every good Canadian knows that won’t last much longer. And being a camper, let me just tell you there are many a night I’ve donned a hat around the campfire.

With this in mind (winter is coming! I’d make a good Stark ;)) I decided to cast on a beautiful DK fall hat.

Loch, by tin can knits is a perfect fall hat. A bit lacy, it’s fun to knit as the pattern is just enough to be interesting. I managed to get my mitts on a skein of amber label DK TFA wool, so the cashmere and silk are pure decadence! Nothing says summer like silk, lol 😉

The only problem with silken wool is it’s nearly impossible to photograph because it’s too damn silky!
I tried my go to place, my front porch, but it was just too bright and washed out the colours….

So then I got a bit creative and turned my knitting chair into my photo prop and got a bit better results

  1. I’m taking a break from my sock knitting frenzy, too. I know how you feel! I love the colors of that cap. I’d be proud to wear it during any Canadian winter. (Oh gosh… I should probably get some more hats knit for me this winter. It’s almost August already!!!!!)

  2. Oh yea the colours are fab – I do hate it when yarn doesn’t photograph as well as it looks in person but that was a nice solution! Thanks for sharing the hat pattern, I’ve never tried a hat before (or socks for that matter) but I love the love of that hat!
