Of all the things that I make, these are my favorite.
From the winding to the weaving, working with this yarn is truly a thrill.
Each skein is different. And each hat has a different look from every curve. Plus the wool is slightly felted, making the hats very, very warm. They are worn year-round in our household and are loved by us all.
I knitted up three of these this weekend in between trips out to the woods to see the fresh snow. I simply couldn't help myself. It's time for knitting on big wool.
I haven't been reading in earnest because my hands have otherwise been very busy updating my little shop (where you can find all of the hats pictured here). But I have been listening a whole lot. Right now, I am finishing up Elizabeth Gilbert's novel, The Signature of All Things , which turned out to be a very compelling read. In addition, I cannot get enough of Sarah Koenig's new podcast Serial.
Please do tell, what are you reading and working on these days?
