In this episode: Welcoming the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness by putting things in jars for later, admiring dramatic skies, planting for the future, knitting waistcoats and new hats, and the Discipline of Do Easy.
Buttonbox: the big reveal! You can read my first ever Changing Clothes column here. Below right: the adorable little collar I chose not to keep. Tough call, but I stand by my decision. Below left: One of the outfits I created for MyBodyModel 3×3 Collection. (There is still time to create your own croqui before MyBodyModel closes forever.)
Say-something hats! In my case, that something is, “Ow.” Your mileage will undoubtedly vary. Top row: the One-Night Hat, by Susan Ashcroft. The yarn is hand spun from gradient rolags, in Aspen Glade by Hilltop Cloud. (From left, right side out; wrong side out and the crown decreases.) Bottom row: A hat for Tonia using the numbers from Tin Can Knits Barley Hat, omitting the garter panel because the texture would be lost in this yarn. I used a spiral decrease at four points for Tonia’s hat. It’s kind of square. She loves it.
Enjoy three seconds of pre-washed felt, dancing on the line in the October light.
Watch Discipline of Do Easy, by Gus van Sant.
