The evenings are finally cool enough to get away with wearing some hand-knits.
Shawls! Cowls! Hats! In a week or two, I’m positive you’ll catch me with fingerless mitts. Do I actually *need* to wear any of this stuff yet? Not really. But I’ve been knitting all summer long & it’s so lovely to be able to wear my finished projects rather than tucking them away.
To celebrate the beginning of knitwear season, I pulled some bulky grey yarn out of my stash & got to work on this quick (and free) hat pattern – Kelly McClure’s Mineralogy Hat.
The diamond stitch pattern is pretty subtle, but it’s there! I changed the brim & top of this hat to make it fit my tiny head perfectly.
Uniform: skinniest jeans, flats, black & blue striped tee, superlong rhinestone-chain earrings, new hat!
Hopefully this cooler knitwear-and-layering friendly weather lasts for awhile. I have a huge backlog of not-yet-blogged knits to show you.
