A Spring Hat


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.
