Already August

It’s still mostly summer, but it’s slowly changing to that time of year when the nights are a bit cooler, windows open more often than not, and all the outside things are getting a little overgrown and I couldn’t care less. Today is pretty warm and sticky, so we’re keeping life small and portable.

and another thing

Another slow knit hat, made even slower by using a pattern written for dk weight yarn, doing a little math and subbing in fingering weight. Started way back before Christmas, it toted right along side me most days, sometimes not even getting a stitch in, but it was always there just in case a moment came. πŸ’•

Pattern: Oslo Hat by Petite Knit.

Yarn: Dia Merino Sock by Colour Adventures. (Puppy Love Colorway)

The little carved bone tapestry needle is from here, and was a gift from Lex (finding a beautiful use for an ugly byproduct is clever recycling). Oh, and I might have some cute new things coming to the Etsy shop soon, basically, if you like what I like or like what I make, now you can have some too! (mostly pinbacks, stitch markers, maybe some one off sews, destash and other charming weirdy-ness, all handmade by me in my little studio) ..it might actually happen, I think?
