A Winter Hat
I have been knitting a lot more since the weather turned cooler, and I found a beautiful hat pattern, for the Selbu Modern hat. It was my first hat, and my first attempt at colourwork, but it was a lovely easy knit and I didn't have any problems at all with it. The yarn was just some merino wool from Spotlight, in a bright red and a charcoal grey (the photos make it look much lighter than it really is). Sadly though on me it looks like a baker's hat - it needs long hair to carry it off well, so I've given it to my youngest sister as a birthday present :) I did find a long haired model for the photos though!
As she started to get the hang of modelling, she began to set up some shots for me.
At first they were more simple poses:
Then they began to be more ambitious - perhaps a couple of shots of her blowing some grass seed out of her fingers?
Or maybe a shot of her eating a leaf?
After that it got silly very quickly so I haven't included any of those ones ;)
