Textured brown things for WIP inspiration: a close up of a woodpile from the Ai Wei Wei Exhibit, rebar installation also by Ai Wei Wei, close up of tree bark at the cottage.
I’ve been working away on a lovely hat, Diode, designed by my friend Erica. I saw her wearing a navy blue version in the winter and immediately fell in love! I generally find that knitted hats are not warm enough for me- the wind cuts right through them, and my ears are really sensitive. But this hat has a knitted double brim, for extra insulation, and the small needles and sportweight yarn make for a thick, dense fabric that is way warmer than most of my knitted hats. And those tiny bobbles! I seldom see bobbles looking quite so lovely as this.
Gatsby, very graciously modelling.
It’s a lovely, portable little knit that’s easy to memorize. And as of this post, it’s just come off the needles and ready for FO shots- we’ll have to try to get those this weekend.
