Another Hat


My fruit basket on the island decided to help me with the photo shoot of this hat.  The pattern is fantastic because it uses fingerweight yarn which I love and it is so versatile.  I was one inch short in the body and it doesn't really matter because hat knitting is oh so forgivable and flexible.  I'm thrilled that I can use up all the left over sock yarn bits and ends to make a scrappy hat like last time.


This lovely orange yarn is left over from this project.  So far I think it is my hat.  For now.  This morning I mused over how to photo the hat without doing my gymnastic feats of self portraits.  I don't know about you but I find hats and socks hard to photograph.  Even when they are on a body.  Something for me to think about I guess. So guess who was wearing the above hat?


Why a lovely ceramic chicken "helped" with the photo shoot.  I LOVE his beady eye :)

  3. 'Tis a lovely hat,indeed! Yes, I too have some similar coloured fingering yarn so this could be a good project, and yes, again, to finding hats difficult to photograph. Your little helper was a good idea ;-)
