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.
