finished knitting, woolly hat

The beginning of May, just as we are finally getting some warm weather is not the most appropriate time to finish knitting a hat. I started it before Christmas but life has taken over in the past few months and knitting has been pushed to one side. Never mind, I will have a new hat for next winter.

This is Everglade by Woolly Wormhead. I have knitted this pattern before and have worn it a lot so decided to knit a second one in blue. As last time I used Jamiesons double knitting, this time in Prussian Blue.

When I first bought this pattern, the hat was modelled with the brim turned up, now when I reprinted a copy (I scribble and count rows on my patterns so it is nice to start with a clean sheet to avoid confusion) the picture shows it worn in a slouchy style with the brim down so I'll try that next winter - hat wearing fashion may have changed in the last three years!

I uploaded these photographs to my laptop along with some pictures of my walk, so continuing the blue theme, here are a couple of bluebell photos.

Bluebells and stitchwort, you can never have too many bluebells.

Hi I love that hat gorgeous colour. I knitted lots of hats over winter but none as nice as that one. I'm not very good at knitting in the round but I may download it and have a go.

Its a nice pattern and there are written instructions and charts - I usually like the written. I am a fan of Woolly Wormhead hat patterns, they are very well written.
