Sometimes a project just calls to you.

Handspun - Spindlefrog Artichoke colourway

This is some Corridale by Spindlefrog, in the Artichoke colourway. According to etsy, I bought it almost a year ago, and it was spun up and skeined up about two days after it arrived.

From then on I loved it, but I didn’t know what I wanted to do with it.

So I just looked at it alot, and took it out and hugged it.

Yesterday I saw this hat by Cosymakes, and suddenly I knew what my lovely handspun skein would become!

Within a few hours, my skein was balled up…

and I spent yesterday evening watching Nigel Slater’s Simple Suppers (and Real Food – which I have, taped off the telly years ago <3), happily knitting away.

(Aside – I LOVE Nigel Slater and I’m so happy that he’s back on tv. I think there is a post about this brewing…)

Handspun Autumn Hat

There really is something wonderfully satisfying about knitting a hat bursting with autumn colours on warm 4.5mm needles. It is proving to be a simple but joyful break.

  1. That handspun looks just exactly like a carpet of fall leaves–it’s so gorgeous!! (I’m making a fall hat too, almost that same plummy purple you’re also using, and with beads(!) . . . hopefully it will be cute and not over the top. 😀 )
