I finished my Rivendell hat last weekend, nestled in the comfort of home in Connecticut. It's just so satisfying to see the way it comes together at the end.
I used two skeins of Lorna's Laces Green Line DK in "Growth," which is a soft organic wool in a subtle semi-solid green. I've got one more I want to work up in Elsa's gray cormo wool, and then I can write up the pattern.
It's a really pretty hat in person, and I wish to heck I'd remembered to have my mom take a photo when I there. I've been toting my camera around the past week but always felt too shy to ask my friends to take photos of me in my hat.
I need to find a knitting friend here that I could ask without blushing. I don't know why I feel shy like this; all friends are well aware of how knitting is part of my identity. They see the yarn tumbling across my bookshelves, the shawls constantly wrapped around my shoulders, the small projects I pull out of my bag when I'm over for dinner. But somehow asking them to participate --especially the very intimate act of taking photos -- is a deeper step.
So, unmodeled photos it is for now.
