Yesterday I was having one of those I’ve-got-nothing-to-wear-and-I-look-ugly-in-everything days… I’m sure you know those… ;) So as I was flicking through my closet in desperation I came across this little feller who has been waiting for a photoshoot so patiently ever since mid-August.
So I snapped a few hasty photos in order to finally show you the finished product. The truth is that I hadn’t taken pictures before because, despite liking the hat a lot (and regardless of whether I’m having a good or bad clothes day), I really don’t think I look that good in it. So it will be given away, I don’t know to whom yet, but I’m sure the right person will come along eventually.
And I will be jealous! The fabric is soft and smooth, it’s a true joy. The pattern is simple and romantic. And the colour is white as snow… Perfect for those dark winter evenings… :)
This was my first time working with Malabrigo and I am impressed by what a nice fabric it made. In the photo below you can tell without much effort that the brim has been blocked while the rest of the hat hasn’t. The brim is also stretched a bit (I made its length very close to the circumference of my head), and I think that shows off the beauty of the yarn best.
I haven’t quite figured out how to block a hat of this shape, so if you have any suggestions, shout out! :)
