My frantic knitting during my last couple of days in the UK ended well.

From memory the colour of the yarn is slightly darker in the flesh – truer to the name of the colourway, Sage Teal. In any event, it’s a beautiful colour and an exceptionally soft, lush yarn. It was such a pleasure to knit with Skein Queen’s Opulent Cashmere again.

I snapped these shots early on the morning we left the UK, just as my dear friend was heading out to work. I’d blocked the hat the night before and I’m not sure it was entirely dry but she happily popped it on her head and posed while I quickly took a few photos. It wasn’t cold enough to wear it when we left, but by the sounds of things it is now and I hope it’s keeping her nice and toasty.

I followed the pattern just as it was written, although I cast it on and ripped it out again a bunch of times before I was happy and I think if I was to knit it again, I’d try a different, tighter-looking double decrease up the crown. Any suggestions for a good one?
