Leaf Lace Hat
The pleasure and angst of what project to start next: cast on for something that speaks to you in the moment, or plan ahead so it will be ready for the appropriate season? For me, autumn is a break from that conundrum. The cooler temperatures call for small accessories that I can make and wear in the same season.
For example, this Lace Leaf Hat that Susan designed in Liberty Wool. Each of the three sizes takes just two balls and the lace is cleverly incorporated into the crown shaping, making it a quick and interesting knit. Although it is still warm in many places, residents of my mountainous hometown in Colorado are already preparing for harvest and fall.
This hat, and CEY's new Autumn Leaf collection (below), excite me for fall and make me a little jealous of those who will soon be enjoying its golden hue.
