what's that? you like grey?
pattern: Le Slouch by Wendy Bernard
yarn: Patons Classic merino in dark grey
needles: 4.5 mm Addis Turbos
First off I have to assert that even though I am totally into (even as a little girl to which my mother can attest...) "matchy-matchy sets of things" (actually I think this may well be a family trait handed down from my Nana...) I still am obliged to tell you that I would in fact NEVER wear that grey seed stitch vest at the same time as what has turned out to be it's matching hat. It's not even the same yarn as said vest --though you'd never know it to look at those two things.
I love this hat/pattern. I am all about the snoody/slouchy hats right now. I made this beret earlier this year in a less than stellar yarn choice so I'm much happier with the results this go round and have already gotten lots of wear out of it.
"hmmmmm, methinks I need something similar in orange...you know for the fall" Well that's what I think this tired 7am face is saying:
Want a sneak preview? Well, you can't suckers because this photo is virtually in darkness.
So I'll save Snood #2 for another entry. Plus, give me a break, I need the blog fodder.
It's been an absolutely glorious fall here so we drove up to Prince Edward County on the weekend to enjoy the fall colours and a little knitting on the beach.
As well as an impromptu slouch (and foliage to come) photoshoot (sorry, I know, photo overload!) But it was such a gorgeous day that we couldn't resist.
My BFF from California is here in a couple days, which means a week long vay-cay for me, and I am SO ready. Hopefully I'll have time to post again before she gets here because I don't think there will be much knitting happening while she's here...just drinking. And shopping. And eating out. And the giving of baby knits to my other BFF. Really it's all win-win.
