I have finished the knitting of my new hat, so now all that stands between its current state and completion is to weave in the ends, sew on the buttons and give it a god block. Actually, no – block the hat and make some buttons, then sew the buttons on. Either way, here it is:
It’s a terrible picture as it is so overcast here today that it is all but night-time, so it doesn’t give the best impression of the colour or stitch definition, but hopefully once the finishing touches have been put towards it there will be ample light for a modelled picture.
Once that is done all that will remain to be done is to write the pattern up and format it, and think of a fitting name.
