There was a white blanket on our back garden this morning.
White, fluffy and perfectly smooth. Just the wee birds taking a hop.
Until the girls woke up. Squealed. Fed themselves.
Dressed up warm and leapt into the puffy white.
They’ve been waiting ALL winter. FINALLY!!! SNOW!!!
And what a perfect excuse to show off my new warm and squishy hat?
I love this little pattern. It is
by Po Lena. A free Ravelry download and super quick to knit.
It has a fabulous cable pattern set to one side up the front, see?
I had grand intentions of knitting it up in the round and avoid the seam at the back. Like
this lovely hat by KGS on Ravelry. But alas, I didn’t have the time or energy to rewrite the cable, so a flat knit it was. And I tried to seam it neatly…
I love the squooshy garter of the rest of the hat and the rapid decrease at the top, leaving a gathered pouch. It’s a great shape.
And no sensible brim to turn up. This woolly number is super chic!
But do you think I have the ball band for the yarn? Nope. Whoops.
I bought this lovely yarn in New Zealand a year ago from Skeinz. I’m not entirely sure but it might be from their Harvest range.
That rings a bell although I can’t see my colour-way in the list. Mine is a deep mulberry.
See my little helper?
She enjoyed the snow too. And her pink gumboots.
They are saying it will snow again tomorrow….
