Another perfect day for indoor handwork. I thought it would be nice to have a new hat for spring. I don't know about you, but we're in need of some bright color right about now.
We woke to more snow this morning, but there's a bare patch of grass under the pine trees across the road, and with it, I'm holding onto some semblance of hope for a real spring, soon.
I've been on a plum kick this year, so I dyed a skein to match my favorite t'shirt. I used Quince and Co.'s Limited Edition Osprey, and when they say it knits up a little differently than Osprey, they weren't kidding. Some skeins knit up as a bulky weight and some at a heavy worsted. No matter, the quality is superb. I just have to make sure and knit a gauge swatch when necessary.
I'm using this as a final test knit for a new hat pattern that I will have available on Wednesday.
Wishing you a wonderful start to your week.
