I gave this hat to my daughter:
It’s knit with a single strand of plötu lopi (Unspun Icelandic) held with a thread of sequins. This yarn is incredibly versatile and I love all the possibilities it gives me as a knitter.
Lopi is very warm but the pattern I chose for this hat gave it a more light weight feel. It was a quick knit, despite all the bobbles, and quick is just what you need when knitting up Christmas presents:)
To shoot the photos we went to one of my favorite places to take my kids for walks, Snug Harbor. There is a little castle over there:
On the other side of it is a secret garden with a maze, and in the middle of the maze is an area that is closed of with a red brick wall. I took the photos inside those walls, in that little area with the little benches……going in there is like jumping inside a storybook full of adventures……
A side note:
The combination of the yarn and sequins I used for the hat is the same one I used for my Hyrna Herborgar shawl way back when, it’s actually the left overs from the shawl:
Happy New Year!! I wish you all a lot of knitting in the year 2013!!!
