Recently I created two thick, colorwork woolly hats, using 2 – 3 different colored yarns.
Here they are:
Designed with the western coastal region of Washington in mind. It is still an area that has not been swallowed up by the city. It’s a rural, wonderful wilderness for beach combing, hiking, or backroad trips.
This hat was inspired by my time this past August in Alaska with my friend, Larraine. I visited for 10 days, seeing everything up close and in person. No cruise ship for me, well, except for the 6+ hour ferry trip to Cordova. Lots of knitting time.
We spent one night at her cabin on the Kenai River. There were “reds” swimming next to the bank so I could almost reach out and touch them. I thought they were so cool. Larraine informed me they were in their ugly stage and dying. They had run their course.
I will admit, it was still pretty interesting to me.
Note: Both are available on Ravelry. Links under each photo.
Until next time…
