Planning And Production

This past weekend was devoted to planning and production.  Planning included finalizing the last of the new booth samples, finishing paperwork for upcoming events and working on a website update. Production involved dyeing - new yarn line, new colors. 

With dyeing comes twisting.

These skeins and many more were twisted in preparation for photos and labels.

All this planning and production didn't leave much time for knitting.  In the little bit of time I had I finished this hat.

The pattern is Marram Hat, the yarn is two unidentified balls from stash.  This photo doesn't do it justice - be sure to click on the link. This quick, fun design uses two colors and slipped stitches to create a textured spiral fabric.  The only modification I made was to knit a deeper brim.  Warm and cozy.

Today I leave you with a couple of shots taken during a walk along the Charles River.

Winter white.

And one of my favorite sculptures dusted with snow.

I love the hat and especially love your choice of colors. Olive and purple are just total soulmates to me.
