I'm posting this from my mobile, and I can't figure out how to rearrange my pictures, so here's an out of order knitting photostory.
Once upon a time there was half-knitted hat. The wool was Noro Cash Island which I bought years ago, cheap I think because it was being discontinued. Which was a bit of a shame really because knitting with it is a real tactile pleasure.
Then the hat was finished (this afternoon) and the colours look quite different in different light.
And finally I cast it on. This was only a few days ago - it's been a very fast knit for me! Especially given that it was quite a busy week one way or another.
This used to be a knitting blog; occasionally it still is!
