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 :)
great color!! (as it was before!!!!) and great hat!!! and don't you feel ever so frugal???ReplyDelete
Great photo props! And love the color/patterns. Exactly what my kids would love. Hmmmm...okay...now I am just plain getting ahead of myself!ReplyDelete
'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 ;-)ReplyDelete
