Since it has been rather miserable weather here the past few days in Belgium, knitting a hat in the middle of June doesn't feel off-season anymore. It keeps on raining, sometimes the sun squeezes through thick grey clouds for a few minutes, and then you think: 'Oh lovely, I'm going to knit outside a bit!' But when you've got your tea ready, your project bag and go back inside to fetch the printed pattern, the sun is gone.
So this Clara May Hat is a pattern by Liesl and it's even knitted in BV yarn. The pattern was gifted to me, which is so genereous! It's really great to knit, lovely texture, variation, new techniques I've learned... . And the best, in my opinion, is the yarn color! It's hard to picture, but it's such a mysterious color, makes you look twice! She dyed it in a pot with cherry bark and I think the result is stunning. It goes very well with my skintone (it's only recently that I've learned that soft colors match my skin and hair tone more than darker or vivid colors)
I can't wait until Autumn to wear it!
