Photo taking was delayed yet again today, when I realized that my photography assistant (i.e. sister) had a morning exam and was out of the house even before I woke up, not to return well after nightfall. Which is really too bad, as we had wonderfully heavy snowfall today which would’ve given such an atmospheric backdrop to the photos of winter hats… Ah well. I’m using it as an opportunity to add more items to my FO list. I’ve added one since yesterday, so now there is a total of four finished hats. It will be one long photoshoot, I tell you. :)

I was also extremely pleased to find that my Mom’s stash of odd buttons contained the perfect match to one of my FOs.

At first I was thinking of black buttons for this. But when I found these, I quickly reconsidered. The yarn (the very special Berroco Ultra Alpaca, in Peat Mix if I’m not mistaken) is ever so slightly irregular in colour (there are whiffs of slightly lighter green here and there), and the buttons go from dark green to black in a way that also looks very unplanned and natural. They are a perfect match! And there were only two! Such luck. :)

Let’s hope it extends to the long-awaited photography session tomorrow… :)

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.
