Knitting News: Kepler Hat Complete


Ah, the joys of self photoing.  I thought you'd enjoy the creative process of me taking photos by myself.  I kind of had fun in a way though.  Trial and error but not too bad overall, thankfully a DSLR camera has a delete button.

I finished a hat!  The first holiday knit of the season- I feel on top of the world with my to do list that is mounting with what I'd like to knit for presents this year.  I'm coining this season 'the year of the hats'.



This pattern is from Quince & Co, a fantastic online store.  I've bought many of their wools - their costumer service is impeccable and I highly recommend you try out a skein or two.  I loved this hat when it was first released.

I knew I had various yarns in my stash to knit from so I refrained from buying their suggest wool, but boy oh, that was a difficult resistance.  I'm still toying with buying a skein but not right now.



The wool I chose was dromedary by juniper moon yarns.  This wool is oh so soft and squishy!
I know this hat will be warm to wear.  I could feel it in every single stitch.  The halo is slight and the stitch definition is perfect.


I've cast on for hat two....

  2. Great job - I like that pattern too, and was considering making one for myself (I'm currently in the Year of Me with my knitting).

    Quince & Co is amazing - love their yarns, their service, and so many of their patterns.

  7. This beanie is terrific. It looks warm and soft. The pattern you chose is interesting to the eye. I like the pointed top. Can you place your digital camera on a shelf and set the timer when you have to take selfies?

  8. You take a great selfie. Not easy. I love the hat and the blue yarn in this pattern. I love the Quince Co. too. I think I have that pattern and one skein of Phoebe - the DK weight. I will put that on the list - just after the November birthdays - 2 and Christmas gift knitting. I think I have a little knitting coming up. Did I say I like the blue yarn? I like the blue yarn.
